    What are you saying he lied about exactly?
    That isn't what it says. You're lying.

    Buttigieg has not claimed to have been involved in direct combat, but he has written at length about the dangers he faced in the unpredictable environs in downtown Kabul, where stops at checkpoints or encounters on the street could turn deadly.
    Buddy, I always had my suspicions but this thread proved to my satisfaction the truth about your service claims.
    So nobody forgets, you're welcome!

    Nonsense. The Direct Commission Officer program is a legitimate source of commissioned officers:

    A direct commission officer (DCO) is a United States uniformed officer who has received a commission without the typical prerequisites for achieving a commission, such as attending a four-year service academy, a four-year or two-year college ROTC program, or one of the officer candidate school or officer training school programs, the latter OCS/OTS programs typically slightly over three months in length.

    Civilians who have special skills that are critical to sustaining military operations, supporting troops, health and scientific study may receive a direct commission upon entering service. These officers usually occupy leadership positions in the following areas: law, science, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, nurse corps, intelligence, supply-logistics-transportation, engineering, public affairs, chaplain corps, oceanography, merchant marine affairs, and others.

    As someone who got his commission via OCS (actually AOCS in Pensacola), I can tell you that missing those three months (often sarcastically referred to as "Knife and Fork School" by enlisted folks) hardly makes anyone less legitimate an officer.
    Trump: "[W]hen you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that's a pretty good job we've done."

    Oof. Something I have never done for political purposes is criticize the military service of any person of any political persuasion. That's disrespectful to the individual and to the armed forces in general. Calling a gay man Booty-whatever is also about as classless as it gets.

    I agree with you. Clearly nothing is sacred at all anymore, but denigrating any person's military service is bottom feeder behavior.
