Donald Trump smiled in uniform as a cadet at the New York Military Academy then sidestepped the Vietnam draft with college enrollment and a medical deferment for bone spurs a relatively minor injury in his foot....
After leaving the University of Pennsylvania in 1968, he was quickly classified as 1-A, available for service in July 1968 and went for a physical that September.
He was "disqualified" at some point after the physical and got a medical deferment in October 1968, the records show....
Trump biographer Wayne Barrett, author of "Trump: The Deals and the Downfall," ...said Trump likely got special treatment as a young man with money and influential family connections.

A lot of wealthy kids went the same route so the draft only caught patriots and poor people. That’s not a ringing endorsement of The Donald.
I honestly don’t give a damn.
If we don’t secure our border then there will be nothing left to fight over.
The professional politicians (except for maybe Cruz) have neither the will or the courage to stand up to the media or the GOPE.
I don’t want someone that Rove and Bohner like for our next president.
Just my take.
They turned down someone I know because his knee clicked. I do not believe they would take someone with bone spurs.
[Thats not a ringing endorsement of The Donald.]
Maybe TRUMP was preserved to fight a war of words.
At age 13, after behavior problems led to his dismissal, his parents sent him to the New York Military Academy (NYMA), hoping to direct his energy and assertiveness in a positive manner.
Emails and birth certificates we cannot find.
Old photos of Trump in a military uniform? Why, I have those right here ...
oh, good grief.
He is a stalking horse for some other candidate and ones wise enough to use him. He isn’t a serious candidate, but he is fun.
It says a ton that Establishment types are attacking him so hard. They don’t like the issues he is putting out there.
GO Donald! Ride the horse as long as you can and get the major issues that irritate the Establishment (DemoRepublicans)!
I am thankful he brought up the out of control immigration issue.
I don’t G.A.S. about whether he wore a uniform or not. Plenty of traitorous bastards served in our armed forces and now pollute our government. I’m not planning on voting for him, but I’m happy he’s willing to fight, now. Unlike most of the treacherous Republican RINO bastards who can’t open their mouths without apologizing for being Republicans....
... and then after his medical deferment expired, he registered and, luckily for him Trump was given a high lottery number. Already been posted earlier today.
And someone who picked an amnesty activist is going to secure the border? Trump has no credibility on immigration. People want to believe something so they suspend all judgement. It’s a neat trick.
Apparently it worked!
Did Jeb do the national guard like his brother?
Note the hair hasn’t changed much at all...lolol...he still combs it that way...though of course less of it.
It is a source of ceaseless amazement at how many normally sound and intelligent conservatives have joined the cheering squad for this pro-abortion, pro gun grabbing, pro amnesty (until a few months ago), pro-sodomy, serial adulterer and political chameleon.
It boggles the mind. All I can say is that I will NEVER under any circumstances vote for that man.
I’m all ears for alternatives.
Cruz is a solid choice.
But anyone who doesn’t take crap from the right people can’t be trusted.
