Since he was just sworn in as the President of the United States, we’ve been wondering: Was Joe Biden In The Military? Let’s see what we can find on his Military career but before that, a quick introduction to Joe Biden.

Joe Biden’s Early Life and Political Career

Joe Biden was born November 20, 1942, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and is a politician who has served as Vice President of the United States under Barack Obama since 2009.

Biden’s father had been very well known for his work as an attorney and public servant which led Joe towards following in those footsteps when he went to law school after college before making a name for himself practicing law full time while raising three kids simultaneously. This ambition soon brought him into the office where he would meet with Barack Obama during his second term and together they passed marriage equality through congress, something that made them both proud considering how hard they fought from day one in the White House on equal rights issues.

In a New York Times article from 1987, Biden talked about how his family life with Jill and their children has helped him in the work that he does as a politician.

“I really think I’m good at politics because my whole life is built on human relationships,” he said in this interview for the publication’s profile of him. “Life was never anything but public service.”

Biden went to law school after college and eventually found himself practicing law full time while raising three kids simultaneously before coming into office as Vice President under Barack Obama in 2009. He spoke openly about being proud of what marriage equality looked like when it passed through Congress during his second term alongside Obama who had been pushing for equal rights from the day on in the Oval Office.
