Bush's Nat'l Guard Payroll Records Destroyed

by TChris

Efforts to find payroll records that could confirm whether President Bush actually reported for his Air National Guard service in Alabama have been futile, and now it appears that the records may never be produced, as the Pentagon claims they were "inadvertently destroyed."

It said the payroll records of "numerous service members," including former First Lt. Bush, had been ruined in 1996 and 1997 by the Defense Finance and Accounting Service during a project to salvage deteriorating microfilm. No back-up paper copies could be found, it added in notices dated June 25.
