Son of VP nominee Sen. Joe Biden off to Iraq
AP: Beau Biden, the son of Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Joe Biden, will leave with his unit Friday for several weeks of training in Texas before deploying to Iraq.
OYE Comment: We would like to thank Captain Beau Biden for stepping forward and serving with the Delaware Army National Guard in the Judge Advocate General's office. Our Country is very fortunate in the 2008 election season to have also, from the Republican ticket, Sen. John McCain's and Gov. Sarah Palin's sons serving in uniform. Having the nation's 'elite' serving in the Armed Forces demonstrates to the rest of us that Military Service is a legitimate career option for those of all backgrounds.
