I see alot of people wearing bomber jackets (and other types of military clothing) that I don't believe were ever in the military and I'm sure there must have been other presidents who never served on the battlefield. And I'm sure that our next president (or, at least the one after him/her) will probably not have served. Does that mean they should not be "allowed" to be Commander in Chief and make decisions regarding using the military?
I don't want to get into this yet again, but ideally, our leaders should be upstanding, honest individuals. Realistically, they're human and, I believe, try to do what they think is best MOST of the time. And let us not forget that these decisions are not made alone -- there is a cabinet and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
