Ed O'Daniel, I received the following in my in-box, and...

...being a good experienced military man(I didn't serve near as long as you did, but I did have an "RA" serial number...LOL) you know what "crapper" rumors are. Well, when I was in, they were sub-classified into "1st stool, 2nd stool, and 3rd stool" and what I received in my in-box looked like "1st stool" stuff to me.

With all your vast military experience, can you help authenticate some of the salient points of what I received. I think the number one point is an Honorable Discharge was not granted until some 30 years...+ or -...after the fact... And the inbox receipt is as follows:

Subject: Kerry's Military Records

I have no idea if this is a hoax but it looks like the SEALS are doing a little recon of their own.
This is more than an eye opener. Unlike McCain, Bush, and Gore....Kerry has adamantly refused to authorize the release of his military records. Most think it's because of his phony battle medals. I think the real reason is below. He was not granted an Honorable Discharge until March 2001, almost 30 years after his ostensible service term had ended! This is very much out of the ordinary, and highly suspect. There are 5 classes of Discharge: Honorable, General, Other Than Honorable, Bad Conduct, and Dishonorable. My guess is that he was Discharged in the '70s, but not Honorably. He appealed this sometime while Clinton was doing trouser-tricks in the Oval Office. Political pressure was applied, and the Honorable Discharge was then granted. His file is probably rife with reports of this, submissions and hearings on the appeal, reports of his "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy, along with protests that were filed with respect to his alleged valor under fire.


On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry signed a 6 year enlistment contract with
the Navy (plus a 6-month extension during wartime).

On 18 Feb. 1966 John Kerry also signed an Officer Candidate contract
for 6 years -- 5 years of ACTIVE duty & ACTIVE Naval Reserves, and 1 year of
inactive standby reserves (See items #4 & $5).

Because John Kerry was discharged from TOTAL ACTIVE DUTY of only 3
years and 18 days on 3 Jan. 1970, he was then required to attend 48 drills
per year, and not more than 17 days active duty for training. Kerry was
also subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Additionally, Kerry,
as a commissioned officer, was prohibited from making adverse statements
against his chain of command or statements against his country, especially
during time of war. It is also interesting to note that Kerry did not
obtain an honorable discharge until Mar. 12, 2001 even though his service
obligation should have ended July 1, 1972.

Lt. John Kerry's letter of 21 Nov. 1969 asking for an early release
from active US Navy duty falsely states "My current regular period of
obligated service would be completed in December of this year."

On Jan. 3, 1970 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to the Naval Reserve
Manpower Center in Bainridge, Maryland.

Where are Kerry's Performance Records for 2 years of obligated Ready
Reserve, the 48 drills per year required and his 17 days of active duty per
year training while Kerry was in the Ready Reserves? Have these records
been released?

Has anyone ever talked to Kerry's Commanding Officer at the Naval
Reserve Center where Kerry drilled?

On 1 July 1972 Lt. John Kerry was transferred to Standby Reserve -
On 16 February 1978 Lt. John Kerry was discharged from US Naval

Below are some of the crimes Lt. Kerry USNR committed as a Ready
Reservist, while he was acting as a leader of Vietnam Veterans Against the

1. Lt. Kerry attended many rallies where the Vietcong flag was
displayed while our flag was desecrated, defiled, and mocked, thereby giving
aid and comfort to the enemy.
2. Lt. Kerry was involved in a meeting that voted on assassinating
members of the US Senate.
3. Lt. Kerry lied under oath against fellow soldiers before the US
Senate about crimes committed in Vietnam.
4. Lt. Kerry professed to being a war criminal on national
television, and condemned the military and the USA.
5. Lt. Kerry met with NVA and Vietcong communist leaders in Paris,
in direct violation of the UCMJ and the U.S. Constitution.

Lt. Kerry by his own words & actions violated the UCMJ and the U.S.
Code while serving as a Navy officer. Lt. Kerry stands in violation of
Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Lt. Kerry's 1970 meeting
with NVA Communists in Paris is in direct violation of the UCMJ's Article
104 part 904, and U.S. Code 18 U.S.C. 953. That meeting, and Kerry's
subsequent support of the communists while leading mass protests against our
military in the year that followed, also place him in direct violation of
our Constitution's Article 3, Section 3, which defines treason as "giving
aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare.

The Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, states, "No person
shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President
and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath . to support the
Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or
rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof."

No, it is not accurate.

But Kerry's own posting of just select records doesn't help him.

His final DD 214 would be advantagous as it records all time served until discharge.

When an Enlisted person goes to an Officer Candidate school (or Warrant Officer school for that matter) they attend under the terms of their current enlistment contract. When they complete the school they are discharged from the service and rejoined under a new contract. The contracted times are NOT added together.

This file shows his discharge and the reason and how he was continued on duty as an Ensign:

Kerry's DD 214 on his site just happens to be the one received when discharged after completing OCS and he also has the official Honorable Discharge dated 16 Feb, 1978. He served his time in Active Reserves after graduating and until he got his early out while being an Admiral's aide. He was then placed in the Inactive Reserves then the Standby Reserves .


This record shows the years and types of service:

He did serve his contracted time BUT while a Commissioned Officer he did treat with the Enemy and its agents and he did participate in anti-war events while serving on the Admiral's staff which is improper and against regulation.

Kerry has plenty of discrepancies of his own making so there is no need for anyone to make up more. There is a legitimate question as to why his Standby Reserve time was so lengthy but the real reason remains unknown as he refuses to release all his records despite having stated he would on Meet the Press and at other times. It could be innocent because some extensions happen automatically if you do not respond to a query or if you ask that Standby Reserve time be extended. While the last seems unlikely the first would be in tune with his failure to respond to agents who alerted him to problems at Logan airport when he just ignored them and blew it off.
