No Romney Sons in Service and Mitt Dodged Vietnam The war in Afghanistan is now in its 11th year and the five Romney boys -- now in their early 30s to early 40s -- have been of prime military age all the while. But like most of today's political leadership, Ann Romney has never sent a single son, much less four or five of them, to war. When asked in 2007, during his first run for the presidency, about his sons' lack of military service, Mitt Romney responded, "One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping to get me elected because they think I'd be a great president." Cynthia Wachtell: Ann Romney, Military Mom? No Romney Sons in Service and Mitt Dodged Vietnam I bet he would not hesitate to send your children to war with iran. I bet they have a lot of bullets to dodge while helping him get elected. 5 draft dogers in a family of 6? My question is why didn't they go? Are they exempt because they are Mormons?
