Letter: Military draft ended when Obama was 11

Military draft ended when Obama was 11

In response to the letter about President Barack Obama’s lack of military service, I feel I need to point out that President Trump avoided military service during the Vietnam War, when millions of young men were called via the draft to serve in that conflict. The draft ended in 1973, when Obama was 11 years old! He did not avoid serving, he was simply too young to serve.
