Tutor description

Write a 2 to 3 page, APA style paper, 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? •For instance, 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? •In your paper include the opposing position along with your rebuttal (of that opposing position). For instance, if you believe people should serve in the military to be able to run for President (and why) then your rebuttal would be to those people who do not believe people should serve in the military before running to be President (and why).

President and Military ExperienceNameClassDateProfessorPresident and Military Experience The position of president is the highest office in the nation. Many people believe in order to be president the person filling the office should have military experience. Since the 1992 the candidate that has won has had no military experience but prior to this year the majority of presidents had military experience. The public does not require their presidential candidates to have military experience and in the last few decades have elected presidents with no military experience despite the fact the country has been embroiled in the War on Terror. Presidents should be required to serve time in the military before running for this office. America is always under the threat of war or dealing with a country secretly gathering nuclear weapons. Having a president that understands military strategy and understands what s needed during times of war or conflict with other countries. If the president was required to have served in the military their rank should not be considered but whether or not they received an honorable discharge would be an important factor.
