I should have said that his leadership skills were not tested. How many stars did he have when he retired?

It is the soldier who wins the wars on the field. Does he risk any less?

It is the soldier who takes orders.

And when he gives orders, he receives salutes, not opposition.

It isn't a matter of what he risks. And after Kerry, Webb, Murtha, etc. I have no patience for people who use military service as a shield from criticism or as some sort of indicator of every variety of intellectual prowess.

Look at guys like John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart, etc.,

Glenn Ford served from WW2 to Vietnam, John Wayne did not serve in the military. But he was no leftist either.
