31. Bush can't be compared to other Guard Members
Bush was given special treatment for entering the TANG during a hostile action in Vietnam.

Bush signed a commitment to TANG for 6-years.

Over one-million was spent on his training.

He was insubordinate by failure to perform activies under direct orders given to him by his Commander.......This was more than one occurrence with the very major directive and reguired under military regulations was to appear for a flight physical. He claimed that his goal was to become a pilot and then after his training he refuses to take a required physical and apparently never performs his military commitment again?

He fails to sign-up for duty at Alabama NG or Massachusetts NG.

He failed even coming close to performing his military duties for this 6-year commitment.

He again with special treatment he is given an honorable discharge for duties that he had never performed.

Now honestly how many other Guard/Reserve members would be allowed to get away with George W. Bush's record and still receive an honorable discharge????

e failed to sign up for duty at Alabama and then again in Massachusetts.

George W. Bush
