Re: [Gen'l Info] Decorated US Presidents

Additional Presidents who served in the military, not just in wartime, also include:

Major James Monroe - Revolution
Private Franklin Pierce - Mexican War
Captain Abraham Lincoln - Black Hawk War
Brevet Major William McKinley - Civil War
Lt. James Carter - Cold War (1946 - 53)
Ronald Reagan - WWII (he had some kind of rank as a Hollywood liason for the US Army Air Corps)

Herbert Hoover - he was in Tientsin, China in 1900 during the Boxer Rebellion, directing the defense of the civilian community. Does that count?
