Who in Congress served in the Military?
About: who served? | united states senate
Here is the picture for the Senate:
i.e. 70% of the senators who are determining the oversight of the military, it's funding & Iraq war policy have never served at all in the military. Even less have ever served in combat! This website is fascinating. The House is almost the same picture. Of the current crop of 17 candidates for president only 2 served in combat, 5 were in the military. None of the Democrat party candidates served in combat. See this page. This explains a lot.
