      necessary qualification for DoD or anything else.  I just think given this Administration's roster and penchant for drone warfare etc, it is desirable now.

        I didn't say that having a combat veteran was necessary for any position. What I did say was that having a combat veteran was an important thing for Sec. Def.

        Important and necessary are two very different things. Oh and I agree, it is a desirable thing to have especially given our involvement in Afghanistan.
