  •  Mitch McConnell NON Military Service. (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    From Wikipedia:

    McConnell served briefly in the United States Army Reserve during the Vietnam War-era but was discharged for unknown reasons.

    The exact circumstances surrounding the discharge remain unknown because McConnell has always refused to discuss them; however, in August 1967, a telegram[2] was sent to the commanding general at Fort Knox (where McConnell was in boot camp) by former Senator John Sherman Cooper, for whom McConnell had previously worked as an intern. The telegram stated that O'Connell was "anxious to clear post in order to enroll NYU. Please advise when final action can be expected." However, no record exists of McConnell ever enrolling - or even applying for admission - into New York University. [3]
