InfoJohn William Warner

Senator Warner was born February 18, 1927. He is the grandson of John W. and Mary Tinsley Warner of Amherst County, Virginia, and the son of the late Martha Budd Warner and the late Dr. John W. Warner, a physician and surgeon.

Senator Warner lives in Alexandria, Virginia and has three grown children and two grandchildren.

Senator John Warner, Republican from Virginia, was first elected to the United States Senate on November 7, 1978. On November 5, 1996, he was reelected to serve his fourth six-year term.

Senator Warner has had the good fortune ? the privilege ? to have been a public servant in seven different positions, with cumulative service of over thirty five years. His first opportunity began during World War II when in January, 1945, at age 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served on active duty until the summer of 1946 and was honorably discharged as Petty Officer 3rd Class, electronic technician's mate.

He then attended Washington and Lee University, from which his father graduated in 1903. He was awarded a B.S. degree in basic engineering sciences in 1949. Warner then entered the University of Virginia Law School.

At the outbreak of the Korean War in the summer of 1950, Warner interrupted his studies and commenced a second tour of active military duty, beginning in October 1950, this time in the United States Marine Corps. A year later, October 1951, as a first lieutenant in communications, he volunteered for duty in Korea and served as a ground officer with the First Marine Air Wing. Following Korean active service he remained in the Marine Corps Reserve for 10 years and was promoted to rank of Captain. Upon his return from Korea, Senator Warner finished his law degree at the University of Virginia.

Senator Warner's public service continued with his election in 1978 to the U.S. Senate. In 1998, he was selected as Chairman, Senate Armed Services Committee, a post he held for 2 ? years. He is now the top ranking minority member of the committee. He is also the second most senior Republican member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, a member (former Chairman) of the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, and a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.
