Damning Evidence

OK, let's assume that two of the 4 memos being bandied around this week are forgeries. Out of respect for the deceased Lt. Col. Killian, let's agree with his son and say that he would never have made the "sugar coating" statements or implied that higher-ups were pressured to protect George W.
So we're down to 2 memos that he did sign. What evidence do we have that George did not fulfill his obligations or that he disobeyed an order? How about this (all from AP) :

Signed Memo 04 May 1972
SUBJECT: Annual Physical Examination (Flight)
1. You are ordered to report to commander, 111 F.L.S., Ellington AFB, not later than (NLT) 14 May, 1972 to conduct annual physical examination (flight)IAW AFM 35-13.
2. Report to 111th F.L.S. administrative officer for schedule of appointment and additional instructions. Examination will be conducted in duty status.

Signed Memo 01 August 1972
SUBJECT: Bush, George W. 1st Lt. 3244754FG
Suspension of Flight status
1. On this date I ordered that 1st Lt. Bush be suspended from flight status due to failure to
perform to USAF/TexANG standards and failure to meet annual physical examination (flight) as ordered.
. . .
3. I recommended transfer of this officer to the 9921st Air Reserve Squadron in May and forwarded his AF Form 1288 to 147th Ftr Intrcp Gp headquarters. The transfer was not allowed. Officer has made no attempt to meet his training certification or flight physical. Officer expresses desire to transfer out of state including assignment to non-flying billets.

. . .

Everybody sing: Oh, I wish I were a Crawford Texas weiner! That is what I'd truly like to be. 'Cause if I were a Crawford Texas weiner, I'd be the President of this country!
