from biographydotcom's entry on him:
"In 1967, an 18-year-old Springsteen was drafted for military service in the Vietnam War. But as he later told Rolling Stone magazine, the only thought in his head as he traveled to his induction was "I ain't goin'." Springsteen failed his physical, largely due to his deliberately "crazy" behavior...."
LMAO! Just like slick willie and other dem cowards....and yet he writes songs as if he served in the military i.e. born in the usa. What a cowardly little POS joke he is!!
Those almost 60k Americans died because democrat LBJ lied to the American people about the Gulf of Tonkin. I also read dumbivan's post saying those of us who went were fools. You should be ashamed but that will never happen. I was not a fool, just a scared kid who served his country. And there were millions more just like me. And almost 60k never got a chance to come home, raise a family ,and grow old like I did. Liberals like Surf and dumbivan are a disgrace to this country.
absolutely, anyone who served in Vietnam didn't serve their country. The USA had no reason to be in the war those men who refused to serve were the ones that served their country, the ones who went were fools that caused great loss to the country. If everyone had been a hero like Bruce and refused to go it would have saved 60k american lives and a million + other lives, untold destruction and wealth destruction. All to prop up a dictator.
