Charlie Osburn seems a bit one sided when he discusses how Mitt Romney failed to serve in the military when all he had to do was sign up with him in 1969.

If Charlie honestly thinks non-military service disqualifies a candidate for the Presidency, he probably should not have voted for Clinton or Obama. I do want to thank Charlie for serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. He and I are brothers. I served with Howe Co. 3rd Battalion 1st Marine Regiment in the Korean war.
