2. 67 Democrats, 88 Republicans
Edited on Sat Nov-19-05 12:39 AM by 7P Dude
Republicans
72 in the House (18 combat)
16 in the Senate (5 combat)

Democrats
49 in the House (12 combat)
18 in the Senate (5 combat)

It's the lowest percentage of veterans ever.

3. Those numbers are from 108th congress
We're now in the 109th congress. The numbers have changed a little. Someone posted these links last night, and the source appears to be reliable.
