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. I guess Charlie had not heard that Bill Clinton failed to sign up and used college deferments to avoid the draft. Maybe it will come as a surprise to Charlie that Barack Obama decided against joining the military as well. 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.
