    Well, golly. That sure made me a believer.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I don't know whether he has or hasn't released released his records, do you have proof that he hasn't?

    There was a claim he didn't attend Columbia, which seems to be untrue.

The first guy, about my age was heir to a major league construction firm and grew up on a 50 acre estate in an area where land goes for 130K an acre. He did 6 years as ENLISTED in the SF. My nephew-the son of a Harvard and Michigan Law graduate, joined ROTC after 9-11 then went AIT then Rangers Two combat tours in Iraq, then another 14 month deployment in Afghanistan with the SF (currently a Captain). He didn't have to work a day in his life yet he's carrying 90 pounds of gear in the mountains of Afghanistan.
    Vietnam was a working man's war. And you are correct that many of higher economic levels felt the patriotic calling to serve. But the college draft deferment was an attractive avenue to avoid the war and thus college enrollment went up during the conflict.
    I appreciate your nephews service to our country and can tell you are very proud of them. I truly wish them well and a safe return home.

    My only point is that almost every American family at one generation or other has had family members in the military. As far as known, not one Romney member for three generations has ever served in the miitary.

    Of course many respond that Obama nor Biden served and that is true. But both have had military members in their families with Obama's grandfathers and Biden's son.

    Point taken and I should take the high road as the Republicans here in these forums have done in avoiding comment about Obama's parents and wife.

    the WSJ had an article that established Obama did graduate from Columbia but it also noted he didn't even achieve "cum laude" which is around a 3.3 GPA. (most schools release the graduates with the honors noted as well)

    I tend to look at the man-my grandfather earned-among other things-the DSC, the purple heart, the silver star and the Croix de Guerre, my uncle the Purple heart, the Navy Cross (KIA) and my father also served albeit the war ended before he saw actual combat. My uncle served on the USS Missouri-his main claim to fame was finding a big supply of condoms for the sailors as they celebrated the end of the war. My nephew serves as a Captain in the "green berets" somewhere reputedly being Afghanistan. That in no way qualifies me for any political office whatsoever
