OH, you poor, poor baby.
Yes, I signed up not once, but twice. es, it impacted my marriage. Yes, I did go to 'nam. signed up after I was forced to take the physical and passed. I signed up to keep from being a grunt.I wasn't dumb enough to wait to be drafted. I was trained in my chosen career and pursued it after several military trade schools prepared me for it. My guess is you would have stayed out if you had been smart enough to find a deferment. From your posts, it sounds like you weren't even smart enough to get the field you wanted, much less stay out.
