    Notice the date of this article (June 2003).

    In this article, Kerry apparently claims that one of his injuries caused him to miss two days of service. But I posted it because of the following:

    WOW - This is VERY interesting..... make sure you read the entire article.

    So the transfer was NOT automatic as Kerry likes to claim. Furthermore, the "transfer" is automatic for those that spend time in the hospital on at least, TWO SEPARATE occasions. Since Kerry's wounds NEVER required hospitalization, technically, HE DID NOT QUALIFY for a transfer. Therefore, the proclamations by his commanders that they WANTED to get rid of him, MUST BE TRUE!

    Woooo. Way to go, Sherlock Holmes!

    Makes me think about Clinton's speech at the DNC. John Kerry said, "Send me... But not over there! Wait! Wait!"

    This certainly dovetails with statements by his commander which were less than flattering:
    "During Lt.(jg) Kerry's tour, he was under my command for two or three specific operations, before his rapid exit. Trust, loyalty and judgment are the key, operative words. His turncoat performance in 1971 in his grubby shirt and his medal-tossing escapade, coupled with his slanderous lines in the recent book portraying us that served, including all POWs and MIAs, as murderous war criminals, I believe, will have a lasting effect on all military veterans and their families. Kerry would be described as devious, self-absorbing, manipulative, disdain for authority, disruptive, but the most common phrase that you'd hear is 'requires constant supervision.'" -- Captain Charles Plumly, USN (retired)

    My guess is they approved his transfer just to get him out of their hair.

    Same here. I saw stuff like that when I was in the Army, so no reason to doubt it happens in the Navy.
