Webb Campaign Press Release - Jim Webb Touts Military Experience
One of the lesser known Democratic candidates for president took the stage at the Iowa State Fair Thursday afternoon.
Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb served in the Marines Corps during the Viet Nam War and he was Secretary of the Navy during the Reagan administration.
He says this military background has prepared him to be the Nation's Commander-in-Chief.
"The number one responsibility of the President of the United States is that burden of being your Commander-in-Chief," he says. "And making these ultimate decisions about foreign policy, and when to use military force, and when it is wise not to use military force."
