Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ), who put himself in quarantine after contact with a person at CPAC who tested positive for the corona virus, received a message on Monday after the tweeting that he would rather “gloriously die in battle than a virus.”
Various Twitter users, including CNNs Andrew Kaczynski, pointed out that Gosar was a dentist before being elected to the House of Representatives in 2010.

The army is ALWAYS looking for dentists.
It can be a long shot, but as a long-term dentist, Rep. Paul Gosar find a waiver if he was inclined to join.
This actually reminds me of a story about the only military dentist who received the medal of honor … https://t.co/4GNel1dtrV

I thought that when dentists want to prove what tough warriors they are, they just flew to game reserves in Africa and shot a lion while he was taking a nap and then posing for photos next to it https://t.co/7qd5ehYOQ0

An army veteran responded to Gosar with a more serious tweet.
“This made me angry. Dying in battle is never ‘glorious’. It is covered with gore, fog limbs or worse, burned to death in a vehicle, “he noted.” If you’ve been there, it’s a scent that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life. I dream of dying quietly in my bed after witnessing the horrors of the war. “

Such as Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Gosar announced that he would quarantine himself on Sunday after it was discovered that he had been in contact with a CPAC participant who tested positive for the corona virus.
