Democratic Sen. Biden's Son Off to Iraq

from The Washington Post:
On Oct. 3, [Delaware Senator (D) Joseph] Biden's son, Joseph Robinette "Beau" Biden III, will be deployed to Iraq.

"I don't want him going," Biden told an Iowa state fair crowd a year ago, when, as a presidential candidate himself, he learned that his son's unit would be deployed at some point in 2008. "But I don't want my grandsons or granddaughters going back in 15 years. So how we leave makes a big difference."

Beau is the Delaware attorney general and a captain in the Army National Guard.
OYE Comment:

Wow. We thank Capt. Biden for his service to our country and wish him, and his unit, all the best.

Hat tip to Andrew Sullivan.
