What's a Draft?
Thats correct, we have folks from Iraq, Russia, China etc that are all in the Air Force...they joined to get thier citizenship....Im am proud to serve w/these people and it makes the service that much better to be in...I was looking at some news the other day and they had a citizenship ceramony in Iraq. there was well over 200 people getting their papers. they were from all over the world. But the key thing here is they were all in the US military. it seems if a person from another country joins our military and does 3 years they will become a US citizen.
These are the people i respect. they will fight for our country and should be citizens. we need more people like this.
Draft Dodgers have proved they will not defend the United States. Get the F^#k out we dont need a bunch of Squat to pees like them here
Thats a tough one man.....I don't know if I could live that down.....you were right in what you said, but your friend died which sucks......Just out of basic in 66 I ran into a school friend in a bar in Detroit. He told me he was on leave and was planning on crossing the bridge to Canada. He said his MOS was infantry and was afraid he wouldn"t come back. I convinced him he would end up in a military prison. To make a long story short a few months after AIT he went to Nam and was killed. He was only 19 as was I, For over 40 years I have felt guilt. He died and here I am. Had he not listened to me he may have lived to be a old man too. The guys that crossed the border came back and I know of one that got a job with the help of the goverment!! I ETSed out of FT.Bragg and ran into another school friend getting out too. He did his tour in Nam and came out ok. By X-mas he was dead. Making out with his girlfriend in a garage they fell asleep. The engine was running in his car. I guess when it's time to check out ya can't do nothing about it. The thing is alot of poor guys went to Canada and the rich ones got college deferments. Which guys were worse? I respect the ones who served and the ones that are serving now. Everyone is a hero now days (in the military) but it wasn't always so. That's really a shame. Wrong place wrong time I guess. Spitting on a vet is really unforgivable no matter what war he served in. It did happen unfortunatly. I salute you who serve!!
