Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC), a Credible Republican

Operation Yellow Elephant salutes Senator Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, as the only U.S. Senator to have served on active duty in Iraq. [This was piggy-backed onto a recent Congressional Delegation visit to Iraq with fellow Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona.]

While we don't know if Senator Graham has urged those eligible to serve [healthy heterosexuals 41 and under] to show their support for President Bush and our country's policy objectives in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere by volunteering for military service, his personal example is quite compelling. See the CBS News Video for yourself; click here.

I find it funny that the owner of this blog has never served in the military. Mr. OYE Blogman, when will you stand up and BE A MAN?!?!

As soon as our Army Reserve increases the maximum age a bit more.

How about you?

I would find Graham's sacrifice more compelling if this weren't the first time he had deployed to Iraq. I would find it more compelling if he had spent more than 8 days there. I would find it truly compelling if he had been carrying a rifle, without being surrounded by an entire company if infantry.

"Colonel" Graham, my ass.
