Topic: Need help with question!


I am currently engaged in a debate . Could someone please answer the following question:

A friend maintains that before the Eisenhower administration, members of the military were NOT ALLOWED TO VOTE! Supposedly some sort of conflict of interest thing. I say that that IS NOT true! If it is, it would be the first I've ever heard about it...Can anyone help?

Thank you so much for your reply thebrahmagr81. I asked my father who was career Air Force since the '50's and he had never heard of such a thing either. I thought it was a crock of you-know-what...

If that rule did exist, everyone would have heard of it, just like women didn't have the right to vote way back when.
