Mitt Romney: “I was too important to go to Vietnam” – Project Nsearch | DispatchesUSA | Scoop.it

Mitt Romney's answer to the question every soldier and veteran has been wanting to ask: Why should military personnel trust a leader who was not prepared to make the same commitment and sacrifices they do?

Read it, and then try to believe it ... I challenge you. 

"The Vietnam War came at a time in my life when I had other plans. I knew in my heart of hearts that I would one day serve my nation. That I would one day hold an office that would help not only our nation, but also the world. So I did what I could to make sure that I would be around to serve my nation, as well as serving God by teaching very important religious principles to a broader audience overseas. My father did not want me serving, and he convinced me that yes, I was too important to go to Vietnam. I had a greater purpose in life. I wasn’t neglecting my nation, but rather preparing myself for a future of service.”
