Bush Releases Military Records

Maybe this will end this, but I doubt it...

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush, trying to calm a political storm, released all his Vietnam-era military records Friday to counter Democrats' suggestions that he shirked his duty in the Texas Air National Guard.

Hundreds of pages of documents detailed Bush's service in the Guard in Texas and his temporary duty in Alabama while working on a political campaign there in the early 1970s. Democrats have questioned whether Bush ever showed up for duty in Alabama.

"The president felt everything should be made available to the public," White House press secretary Scott McClellan said. "There were some who sought to leave a wrong impression that there was something to hide when there is not."

FindLaw has an archive of documents in this case. As todays documents hit the wires, they should show up there.
