He received a B.S. degree in biology from Gettysburg College in 1957 and a M.D. degree from the Duke University School of Medicine in 1961. He served as a flight surgeon in the United States Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then the United States Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. Afterward, he opened a private practice in obstetrics and gynecology in Texas. He served in the United States Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a non-interventionist foreign policy.

He has written several books including The Case for Gold, The Revolution: A Manifesto, End the Fed, and Liberty Defined: 50 Essential Issues That Affect Our Freedom.
In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world's. Nations such as China and a resurgent Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and violent Islamism continues its dangerous rise. In the face of such challenges, America need not apologize for its liberties, but must use them wisely.
We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength. Creative and bold, Romney proposes solutions to restore economic vitality, create good jobs, reduce out-of-control spending on entitlements and health care, dramatically improve education, and rebuild a military battered by years of war. Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to strengthen America and preserve our global leadership.
Personal and dynamically argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America's history, its promise, and its future.
