So the record will be correct.

Vietnam Service in the United States Senate by Party
Republicans with Vietnam service: 2%
Democrats with Veitnam service: 3%
Independants with Vietnam service: 0%

Vietnam Service in the House of Representatives by Party
Republicans with Vietnam service: 2.8%
Democrats with Veitnam service: 1.6%
Independants with Vietnam service: 0%

Vietnam Service in the Congress by Party
(Combined House of Representatives and Senate)

Republicans with Vietnam service: 2.6%
Democrats with Veitnam service: 1.9%
Independants with Vietnam service: 0%
Conservatives win
WWII
WWII Service in the Congress by Party
(Combined House of Representatives and Senate)
Republicans with WWII service: 0.9%
Democrats with WWII service: 0.6%
Independants with WWII service: 0%
Again Conservative win

Korean War
Korean War Service in the Congress by Party
(Combined House of Representatives and Senate)
Republicans with Korean War service: 0.4%
Democrats with Korean War service: 0.4%
Independants with Korean War service: 0%
a tie

Overall I would say it was the Liberals who were refusing to fight to protect the country.

Oh here is the link.

One last one
Military Service in the Senate Armed Services Committee by Party
Republicans with military service: 26.1%
Democrats with military service: 13%

The original source covers both Republicans and Democrats, as well as Independents.

Thank you for adding your info...and the link.

I think what I noticed first was that it appears, just as Michael Moore said in Farenheit 9/11, that a high percentage of both sides of the house do not serve in the military. Guess their children will follow suit. Privilege and position and you never have to be called a draft dodger to boot.

This is the saddest point about this report- it points that out with statistics.
