Should the President be required to have a Military Service Record? explaining why you believe anyone running for President of the United States should or should not have served in the military at one time or the other. If you believe they should have a Military Service Record before running for President, would any military service, rank, type of discharge, and/or position be sufficient to be President? should only officers be allowed to run for President? What about enlisted members? Should only those people that held command positions be allowed to run for President? What about people with other than honorable discharges?
