4. The same way my grandfather who was chief light and signal engineer of the Nickle Plate Rail Road...

did: he was a little old for cannon fodder and he was considered essential to the war effort working here in the states. My other grandfather was the lead machinist at Goodyear Aerospace.

Trumps grandfather came to the US to evade the draft in Germany. When he built up a nest egg as a brothel owner among other things, he tried to go back to Germany but the Germans refused to allow his draft dodging ass back.

More importantly, Donald evaded the Nam with his phantom heel spurs. Rush Limpbaugh had boils on his ass. Cheney had "more important things to do", his own words.

I went. After my exposure to the draft was over. My lottery number was just high enough.
