Government Leaders and Military Service
There is an interesting post over at Blackfive - Who in Our Government Has Served?
The link - Who Served, provides a consise listing of which Congressmen, Senators, Presidents, Cabinet Secretaries and Judges have served in the Armed Forces. Pretty much an eye-opener, considering that an average of less than 30% of those elected or appointed ever served our country in uniform.
There are some historical comparisons available, too, for WWII and Viet Nam.
Interestingly, the site also tracks the Armed Service and Veterans' Affairs Committees.
