The Guard at War

September 27, 2004

In all the fuss over his service in the 1970s, has anyone noted the irony of George W. Bush using the National Guard as a haven from duty in Vietnam only to turn it into a front-line combat force after becoming president? Too bad he didn't warn the people who joined more recently that the nation they'd be guarding was 10,000 miles from home.
