Despite nationwide push, fewer veterans in Congress

The 116th Congress was sworn in late last week— and with it came a decrease in veterans and military experience.

“We had more veterans lose than win. So, we went backward,” Congressman Don Bacon, former commander of Offutt Air Force Base told The Associated Press.  "The veterans tend to be more team players. Even when they disagree, they do it in a collegial way and I think that we need more of that in the House and in Washington in general.”
