61. Not entieryly true of Mitt and his family to say that
Not entieryly true of Mitt and his family to say that - the church says serving in the Military is just as admirable as serving a mission for the church - same with going into the Peace Corps. WHile the church stresses the mission, for Mitts kids to use their missions as excuses is despicable and half truth (I am LDS BTW).
