Kind of fun.
Here’s some of the service to the country by Defense Secretary nominee Mark Esper that Elizabeth Warren casually discounts. Via Wikipedia:
Esper served as an infantry officer with the 101st Airborne Division and deployed with the “Screaming Eagles” for the 1990–91 Gulf War. His battalion was part of the famous “left hook” that led to the defeat of the Iraqi Army. For his actions, Esper was awarded a Bronze Star, the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, and various service medals. He later led an Airborne Rifle Company in Europe and served as an army fellow at the Pentagon. Esper was on active duty for over ten years before transitioning to the District of Columbia Army National Guard and later the Army Reserve, rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel. Esper is a recipient of the Department of Defense Medal for Distinguished Public Service. Among his military awards and decorations are the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal, the Kuwait Liberation Medal, Kuwait Liberation Medal – Saudi Arabia, and the Combat Infantryman Badge.
Meantime, Elizabeth Warren was pretending to be a Native American so she could advance her career. I’m just saying!
