    Donald Trumpís Draft Deferments: Four for College, One for Bad Feet

    What a coward. I had a high draft number and had lost my right big toe to a pedal ulcer in 1965. I more than qualified for a deferment. No, thanks. I enlisted in 1967, went to Vietnam and served in a combat role with 2/7th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry (Airmobile) and 11th Aviation as a Pathfinder. All this while Trump sat on his priviledged ass at home. And he had the gall to criticize John McCain as a loser for being a POW.

    Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.
    But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.
    The diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.
    The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.
    His experience during the era is drawing new scrutiny after the Muslim American parents of a soldier who was killed in Iraq publicly questioned whether Mr. Trump had ever sacrificed for his country. In an emotional speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, directly addressed Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, saying, “You have sacrificed nothing and no one.”

    Draft dodger extrordinaire.

    He'll likely be the most disrespected Commander-in-Chief in this country's history.

    Are you claiming you need to have served to be a good president?

    You don't have to have served in the Military to send young people to War.

    Donald Trump is a perfect example of a chicken-hawk. Too scared to serve, but itching to send other's sons and daughters to do his bidding.

    Really, only ONE of the Candidates Started a war, that was HILLARY.

    More US Troops died in Afganistan than under Obama than the Bush Administration..

    So, Chicken Hawk is obama..

    Trump has not sent ONE SINGLE MEMBER OF THE MILITARY TO WAR.

    No, draft dodgers ran to Canada.

    Trump was in school and had medical issues, both perfectly legal exceptions.

    But maybe you are right, if Trump had gone we probably would have won the war instead of losing it.

    Noone was claiming you had to serve to be a good president. They were simply claiming trump actively dodged the draft which is clearly true.
