  1. what I want is the records pertaining to his discharge, and whether he was honorably discharged, or had his discharge status changed under Carters first act as “president.”

  2. Kerry gradually improved his grades, averaging 81 in his senior year. His highest single grade was an 89, for a political science class in his senior year. Despite his slow start, he went on to be a top student at Naval Candidate School, command a patrol boat in Vietnam, graduate from law school, and become a prosecutor, lieutenant governor, US senator, and presidential candidate.

    So everyone at Yale was out to get him? Or we just have low expectations.

  3. Maybe I am too cynical — but the first reports indicated that the source for all these new documents was Kerry himself — i.e., *he* got the documents and then forwarded them to the Boston Globe.

    Is there anything showing that someone got these documents *directly* from the government?

  4. Steven L. -
    Feel free to be cynical. Demonstrating his mastery of nuance, Senator Kerry signed an SF-180 for the Navy to release the records they have. But the majority of military records for discharged personnel are held at the National Personnel Records Center in St. Louis. NPRC is part of the National Archives and Records Administration, and there is no indication that he signed a second SF-180 for NPRC, which would be required for them to release the records that they have.

  5. Remember, Kerry was for releasing his records before he was against releasing his records.

  6. WTW: Kerry signed and released

    Hey, y’all, this is Jebediah. Teach left the keys. Now, about this Kerry critter signing his 180’s, he has apparently done that, and submitted them, and released the info (h/t to Poliblog for the story link).Senator John F. Kerry, ending

  7. Don’t think this is over. Copied this off another blog. Kerry hasn’t released his for file.
    Read from the experts.

  8. Assuming that these actually are all the records, which Steven L., pete, and ts combine to make me doubt, it is a bit baffling.

    Maybe he just wanted to avoid handing the righty pundits who were already mocking his “Frenchness” (Frenchiness? Francitude?) the information that “French” was the subject that he scored highest in during his freshman year.
