Kerry's military record 

After looking through John Kerry's Navy fitness reports, I was going to comment on his record from my point of view as a junior Navy officer subject to similar evaluations. However, Phil Carter has already done a fine job, and I really have nothing to add. It's an impressive record, pure and simple, even given the Navy's love of superlatives and inflated marks on officer FITREPs. Even today, after the evaluation system has been totally revised, an average of 4.00 out of 5 is close to the median and words like "outstanding" and "expert" are common. Glowing praise is the norm, but the remarks of Kerry's superiors still stand out.
