For the second time in less than a week, Congressman Mark Kirk acknowledges another inaccurate description of his military service.The Republican candidate for Senate stated on his official House website that he was the only member of Congress to serve "in" Operation Iraqi Freedom. That wording was changed to "during" in 2005.

Kirk's campaign released a statement saying the error on his bio was unintentional

Just a few days ago, Kirk acknowledged his unit won a top award although he had long claimed that he was the only recipient.
