Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/STATON BREIDENTHAL --2/23/12 -- Congressman Tim Griffin Thursday morning during a press conference in Little Rock.

— Republican U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin of Arkansas has been promoted to lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve.

Griffin’s office Monday announced that he had been awarded the increase in rank.

Griffin is serving his 16th year in the Reserve Judge Advocates General’s Corps and is assigned to the Southeast Medical Area Readiness Support Group.

Griffin is one of nine congressmen currently serving in the military.

Griffin is a former interim United States attorney who served in the White House under former President George W. Bush.

He was elected to represent Arkansas’ 2nd congressional district in 2010 and won re-election earlier this month.

Wasn't he a US attorney for all of 5 minutes?

This article also omits Tim's important work as an oil lobbyist and a Republican dirty trickster.

How did he manage to not be called to serve a tour in one of the current wars?
What strings did he pull?

Lazybar,

I am not slamming Griffin for serving in the military. I am slamming him for other reasons--mostly the environment and also for the Bud Cummins incident.

He was and still is a yes man for Carl Rove and who cares about his promotion in the reserves. What counts is how he does job to help the people of his district.
