This is something I’ve been wondering about too.
Crowd sourcing a question about Mike Pompeo’s service record. Appears he served 1985-1991 in Army after graduating #1 at West Point. Why resign at start or in middle of Gulf War and how common for WP top grad to leave only as Capt after 5 years?

Obviously, I can’t speak for Jon, but this may have been partly evoked by this:
I asked Peru’s foreign minister what he might do if sanctions against Maduro start negatively impacting the humanitarian situation in Venezuela. Pompeo stepped in & said I “shouldn’t ask questions like that” & accused me of blaming the crisis on the US. I didn’t, but you decide: pic.twitter.com/6rVJp8iF4Y
