What We Really Know About Lindsey Graham's Military Service
Lindsey Graham has been a member of Congress since 1994, first in the House of Representatives and then in the Senate. He rose to political fame very early on in his congressional career when he railed against President Bill Clinton during his impeachment hearings in 1999. That fame helped him earn his 2002 Senate seat representing South Carolina, according to Britannica, but Graham also has a history of military service that has come under question.

Graham is the son of a South Carolina bar and pool hall owner. His parents passed away when he was in college, leaving him as the legal guardian of his older sister. He was also a member of the Air Force Training Corp while attending the University of South Carolina, and, after law school, he enlisted in the Air Force to become a military advocate and attorney, spending from 1984 to 1988 stationed in Germany. When he returned, he became a South Carolina Air National Guard reservist and remained one until 2015 (via Britannica).
