Andrew J the Pres and Veteran
Dedication and loyalty are both ideal characteristics for a president. That goes not only for the current presidential candidates but for our future presidents or even a Girl Scout leader. Lead with prosperity, being prepared for hardships and do so with pride. 31 of the 43 presidents were veterans. That’s over two thirds of our presidents and, with numbers like that, it’s hard to deny that the candidates being former or current veteran at the time didn’t influence them being voted into office. Who knows? Maybe there was a sense of security for citizens, knowing that the man in charge was once in the shoes of those below him in the military rankings. Sure, it would be nice to know for the army moms that the President understands how much the soldiers are missed and how much the soldiers miss their homes and families. But I don’t believe that is the whole reason why many of our past presidents were elected. Andrew Jackson and the other veteran Presidents had the integrity to work until they won presidential campaigns, many seeing it as some sort of battle to be won or to make an effort to improve the country’s economy or possibly just to prove that they can to the people who doubted them. No matter what career you aim for you should always persevere and remember it could always be worse for you.
