How symbolic yet ironic for Mitt Romney to announce his VP choice on the battleship USS Wisconsin.  GOP Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney certainly has the comfort of knowing it will not be the children of his fellow church members that will be fighting in any U.S. wars.  The State of Utah lawmakers and other LDS/Mormon faithful lawmakers went to Washington in the 70’s and made sure federal regulation was passed to exempt their 19-24 year old men and women from serving in the US Military.  On any given day The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS) - The Mormons has as many 40,000 young men and women missionaries in this age group serving their church worldwide.
