Non-vet Romney not qualified to be a war-time president

By Staff | Jul 28, 2012

To the editor:

I watched Governor Romney on TV speak at the VFW Convention in Reno, Nevada on Tuesday, July 24. He greatly lauded those who had served in the armed forces in time of war. He said that he would be a strong commander in chief. He concluded by saying how much he loved and believed in America and then left without taking any questions.

Mitt Romney claimed and obtained a deferment from military service during the Vietnam War and spent two years in France as a Mormon missionary during that war. Notwithstanding Obama has been a disappointment as President, I cannot see any how any war time veteran could vote for Romney as Commander in Chief.
