Very few, if any, blue-bloods send their offspring to fight wars these days.
The capitalist class (blue bloods) send their children to prestigious universities upon graduation from high school. The working class (everyday people) send their children to the workforce or military upon graduation from high school.

I think there are two congressmen whose son's are serving in the war. Two out of 400 and some.
Wouldn't catch Bush's kids in the military. I did read an article in People magazine around Christmas and he was asked if his kids would ever serve. He talked circles around that question and answered it like only a politician would.
So does Senator Tim Johnson of South Dakota.
Representatives John Kline of Minnesota, Todd Akin of Missouri, Duncan Hunter of California, Marilyn Musgrave of Colorado, Ed Schrock of Virginia and Joe Wilson of South Carolina have sons serving in the military.. http://web.naplesnews.com/03/04/naples/d930340a.htm
