Spoken like a true ignoramus. Why was Bush grounded? His unit was transferring from F-102s to F-101s which would require a transition to a new aircraft which cost$ money!!! Bsuh informed his commander that he did not intend to extend beyond his six year commitment and his commander did not want to spend the money to qualify him in the F-101 so his services as a pilot were no longer required. Since he was no longer an active aviator he was no longer required to maintain a FLIGHT physical!!!Frank wrote:
Bush completed all required training while assigned to Texas Air National Guard and was grounded after he transferred to the Alabama Air National Guard and didn't complete his physical,and was eventually discharged. This is what would happen to any pilot,not just an officer who's father was a respected politician. In comparison,Obama never spent one day training in the military and has never done any thing for his country or our country.
He asked for a "ground" assignment with the Alabama Air National Guard and it was approved. He then requested an early discharge so he could return to school for his MBA and was granted it!
