To: plain talk
I think it was one of the Stephens sons that was able to get a safe Alabama Air Guard slot during the Viet Nam era. Several prominent sons of the ruling class were able to land slots when it was closed off to any new enlistees because of the rush to avoid the draft.

Air Guard slots were ‘safe’? I thought they were deployed during Viet Nam? Those who served in Air Guard... SERVED.
I’m sorry, I’ve made this argument for Bush and will make it for the ‘other side’ as well. Signing up for Air Guard is not the same as draft dodging.
“I think it was one of the Stephens sons that was able to get a safe Alabama Air Guard slot during the Viet Nam era.”
No such thing as a “safe” slot back in that day — or now.
The jets back then were terrible and the Russians really were probing and doing constant intrusions into our territory.
