Explaining that if Romney became president, Whoopi Goldberg questioned Ann Romney on The View today how, as a Mormon, she would respond to mothers who lost their children in wars since their religion did not allow them to fight.

"As First Lady, if you get the job, it's going to tell a lot of things and one of those things is going to be talking to the mothers whose children are coming home in bags, you know, from wars," she said. Now, I know -- I believe that your religion doesn't allow you to go fight."

"No, that's not correct." Ann Romney said. "We have many, many members of our faith that are serving in the armed services. "

Goldberg added that she had "read" that the reason Mitt Romney didn't serve in Vietnam, was because it was "against the religion."

"No. That's not correct," Romney repeated.
