12. Good to know. Sounds like Donald Rumsfeld.

He’s the ONLY senior-level member of the Bush/Cheney cabal who actually wore his country’s uniform. Other than dubya himself. But neither saw combat. dubya had strings pulled for him to sit out the danger in what was jokingly referred to as the “champagne unit” the Texas Air National Guard. I read his term of service described as “bravely protecting the skies over Texas from the Viet Cong”. Rummy’s case was the luck of the birth year. He served between wars - I believe it was either after Korea and before Vietnam, or after WW2 but before Korea.
