White House Releases Bush Guard Records

The White House makes more than 300 pages of documents available to the news media in an effort to answer questions about whether President Bush fulfilled his National Guard service during the Vietnam War. It's presented as the complete record of the president's service, but there are few specifics to place Bush at an Alabama air base in 1972 and 1973. NPR's Don Gonyea reports.

You're most likely to find NPR's Don Gonyea on the road, in some battleground state looking for voters to sit with him at the local lunch spot, the VFW or union hall, at a campaign rally, or at their kitchen tables to tell him what's on their minds. Through countless such conversations over the course of the year, he gets a ground-level view of American elections. Gonyea is NPR's National Political Correspondent, a position he has held since 2010. His reports can be heard on all NPR News programs and at NPR.org. To hear his sound-rich stories is akin to riding in the passenger seat of his rental car, traveling through Iowa or South Carolina or Michigan or wherever, right along with him.
