I don't think that military service is necessarily a plus. Might be, might not. In the post WWII era, only two presidents out of 12 haven't had military experience (Clinton and Obama). I think we all know how most on this forum feel about them.


Of the others during my voting years, I wasn't too fond of Nixon or Carter -- both Navy vets. And let's not forget that Sen. Joe McCarthy -- one of the most despicable politicians of the 20th century, was a Marine (and Republican).


Post WW II presidents:

Truman (Army)

Ike (Army)

Kennedy (Navy)

Johnson (Navy)

Nixon (Navy)

Ford (Navy)

Carter (Navy)

Reagan (Army)

Bush I (Navy)

Clinton (none)

Bush II (Air Force)

Obama (none)
