Now we see why 1LT Bush’s performance review from 1973 records “unable to rate.” The outfit he’d supposedly been reporting to in Alabama wouldn’t say anything to the commander of his home unit in Texas, and that commander, standing up to pressure from his superiors, refused to (his words) “sugar-coat” matters. So he simply refused to rate.
This is very strong evidence that Bush didn’t actually report for duty in Alabama; otherwise, why wouldn’t his superiors there fill out the paperwork to allow him to get a satisfactory Officer Efficiency Report?
Note to Dan Bartlett: No, this doesn’t require reading a dead man’s mind. All that’s necessary is to read his words.
