Sort of like in WWII when Daddy was drafted except he didn’t desert.

You know nothing about the subject this thread is addressing........

forcibly conscripted him just out of his teens.

That was common practice in Central America. My Honduran brother-in-law's nephew was in medical school when the military came into the theater he was in and attempted to round up all the youths and force them into the military. Fortunately for Mario, he ran out the back door of the theater and escaped........

It was also common practice for military trucks to patrol the streets and apprehend the older youths and place them in the military.

Unlike your DADDY, Central America had no such draft laws........

.Once they grab you off the street you have no choice but to serve.

I suspect you have no idea what I know about the subject which I guess is supposed to be gun control.

I do know the El Salvadorian government was fighting Communists and when they got a chance to vote they voted overwhelmingly for freedom, not Communism.

Sorry but I am never going to support illegal immigrants.
