Response to UTUSN (Original post)

8. I'm still waiting for an explanation about how Slick dodged his flight physical in Jun 72

and got away with it.

The USAF personnel management system I was in for 20 years (62 to 83) would have handed a jock his head and other body parts for that stunt. Among other things, "failure to complete annual flight physical" would have resulted in a board of inquiry, then probably a reclassification or release with cause. None of which happened.

For the remaining two years in TANG, Shrub wasn't qualified in any specialty. He was never reinstated on flight status nor was he trained in any other AFSC. In short, tax payers popped for about a million bucks so he could put in about 68 flight hours, re his AF Form 11. He started pissing away our money long before he and Cheney got to the WH.

As for the AWOL, technically he probably wasn't. His commander knew about it, probably ordered under the table to let him disappear. The Reserve personnel center never issued orders reassigning him from Ellington AFB.

And the son of bitch strutted across the deck of USS Lincoln wearing a flight suit, packing socks.
