Recently, we heard from Chris Owen, the preeminent historian of L. Ron Hubbard's war record. We had contacted Chris after a news story appeared that had a hard time making heads or tails of Hubbard's convoluted war record, and ended up making some conclusions that were a bit off.

Chris helped us set the record straight on that, and we're grateful to him for it. He acknowledged that Hubbard's war record is complex, but it really isn't "mysterious," as the press account had it, and it is possible to draw some solid conclusions about Hubbard's war service based on a 1979 review that was compiled.

Right after we had that exchange with Chris, one of our researchers noticed that there was yet another set of documents about Hubbard's war service that had never been posted online before. They had been compiled by the Food and Drug Administration in 1963, much earlier than the 1979 review. Did that earlier assessment jibe with what was put together later?
