Navy veteran Steve Bannon, campaigning in Fairhope, Alabama for Vietnam veteran Roy Moore Tuesday night, ripped Mitt Romney for avoiding military service during Vietnam, accusing him of ‘hiding behind his religion’. Bannon blistered Romney–and his five sons–for not serving in the military during wartime. Romney received a draft deferment for two-and-a-half years while he was in France as a Mormon missionary. Romney also received several college deferments during the war.
Judge Moore…graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1969 where he received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Arts and Engineering. He then served in the U.S. Army as a company commander with the Military Police Corps in Vietnam. After the Army, Judge Moore completed his Juris Doctor degree from The University of Alabama School of Law in 1977.
