baldilocks: My Name is Baldilocks and I am a Ranter
Baldilocks (the pen-name for the Air Force Reservist who wrote the above post) takes a look at Dubya's Guard pay records. Yes, it does show gaps in service. However, Baldilocks does make a few excellent points in her commentary: the first is that you don't get retirement points for failing to show up for duty, and the second is that your weekend call-ups are extremely flexible in the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserves. Read the entire post, though. It's enlightening for those of us who never served in a Guard or Reserve unit.
I also have to say that I dig her choice in haircuts.
