More Proof that the conservative movement is based on being pissed off about the 60s and 70s

Looking into Rep. Gohmert’s bio at Wikipedia, I see that he is three years older than I am, meaning he turned 18 in 1971 while there was still a draft. However, he did not serve in ‘Nam, but was a JAG attorney at Fort Benning beginning in 1978.

That is to say, I believe his remarks would care some more weight if he had served in combat in that very war, or at least while it was going on. Considering his track record of saying some of the world’s most ignorant remarks, his comments about the “winnability” of the Vietnam War can be easily ignored.
