Frank Sinatra was a “4F” “Draft-Dodgin” WEASEL in WW II! Got a “4F” for Punctured Eardrums. Funny my dad had 2 Punctured Eardrums and the Draft Board in Central Iowa had NO problem taking him. I guess it’s WHO ya know!

William Manchester (Marine veteran of 1st Marine Division) said that Sinatra was the most hated man amongst World
War II troops. He was hated more than Hitler and Tojo. The GI’s could not stand seeing pictures of him surrounded by adoring young girls back home. Sinatra did not make trips to entertain the troops.
