I too would like to see this thread end, however I cannot let this 
misrepresentation stand.

In order to get into the Air National Guard you had to pass a test to 
qualify for training as a pilot. Bush took and passed this test while 
he was still in Yale. There was not then, or ever that I am aware of 
during the VietNam war a waiting list for entry into the Air National 
Guard as a pilot trainee. Just the opposite was true, as they were 
having a hard time finding enough pilot candidates during the peak of 
the war when Bush enlisted. There are MANY places where this can be 
verified.

It was the regular Nnation Guard (essentially infantry training) that 
had a waiting list.
