$6.25

We all know Romney's family does not believe in serving in the military, nothing wrong with that, unless you are a hawk that fully supports a war that others have to fight. Civil War, WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq 2, Afghanistan. No Romney has ever served.
In 2007 when asked why his 5 healthy trust fund sons did not fight in the war he supported, he answered with the stupid Winnebago comment, but ALSO that he "personally contributed $25,000 to "various organizations that support military personnel". Keep in mind, Romney makes that much by 10:00 am EVERYDAY in interest.

By 2007, when he made the statement, nearly 4000 US troops had died in Iraq, not including Afghanistan.

$25,000 divided by 4000 comes to about $6.25.
