Gearing up for next week’s foreign policy debate, the Romney campaign has released a list of its “Military Advisory Council” – 359 retired generals and admirals who have decided to throw their support behind the Republican candidate.

“I am deeply honored to have the support of so many of our most accomplished military leaders,” said Romney in the press release. “Together we will restore our military might and ensure that America can defend and protect our interests, our allies, and our people, both at home and abroad.”

Now, whether the nation’s military might is in need of restoring is a question that’s up for debate. And frankly, having a “council” with 359 top brass all giving their opinion at once might make it hard for them to be heard.

Still, Intercepts thought it would be interesting to take a look at just who is on this council, and how the demographics break down by service.
