"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Throughout his career, Attorney General Blumenthal has made statements which either directly noted that he served in Vietnam, or eluded to service in Vietnam. He also made no attempts to counter news stories and literature which he did not produce that stated that he served in Vietnam.

After announcing his run for the US Senate, it was discovered that Mr Blumenthal received five deferments to avoid enlisting and then finally received an appointment to a Marine reserve unit which never left the state. Attorney General has admitted that he did not serve in Vietnam and stated that he did not intend to mislead anyone about his service.
