Did you serve, and if so in what capacity? By the way, I think your arguement holds no water. See, that's the great thing about the United States, we have free speech, which if you served, is one of the things you would have protected. I asked in what capacity because using your thought process, if you were rear echelon, then you really couldn't give your opinion on combat matters, just like I shouldn't give my opinion on how rear echelon does things, right? Buzz has every right to question anyone running for office about anything he feels important to him, without having his service record, or lack of one called into question. I think morally(using your word), we all have a duty to find out everything we can about a person that wants to hold the highest office in our land and control our armed forces. The only mistake our forefathers made when forming this country was not making it mandatory for the president to have served in the miltary.
