I often refer to Rush Limbaugh as a 3 times divorced, draft dodger, drug addict and conservative leader. I thought would give an explanation on why I beleive Rush Limbaugh is a draft Dodger. Draft dodging is avoiding military service during time of war, or as I see it, not doing your duty when you’re country calls. This subject is near and dear to me because my grandfather served in WWII in the US Army and was wounded fighting the Japanese. My father also did 4 combat tours in Vietnam in the Marines and barely left with his life at a place called Khe Sahn. I am also a vet and did my time in the US Army during the first Gulf War.
What was the All-American Patriot Rush Limbaugh doing during the Vietnam War ? From the evidence, it seems as if he was trying to find a way to get out of duty in Vietnam. Rush sought and received a college deferment and when he lost that he got a medical deferment for service from a private doctor. I guess it didn’t hurt either that Rush Limbaugh came from a rich prominent family of lawyers and politicians.
58,148 service members died in Vietnam. 17,725 were draftees. I’m sure there were many of these service members that didn’t want to be there. I don’t think they planned on dying either. I hope Rush Limbaugh and the people that consider him some kind of Patriot realize what he truly is. Freedom isn’t free and when Rush avoided being drafted, he may have allowed another man to go and make the sacrifice for freedom in his place. I would consider that cowardly in the least.
