Would Romney the draft dodger hesitate to send someone else's son or daughter to die in Iran?
Mitt Romney avoided the military by seeking/receiving four draft deferments

Did you know that Mitt Romney dodged the military? Romney avoided military service at the height of the fighting after high school by seeking and receiving four draft deferments according to Selective service records. Romney was of age to fight for our Country, but sought deferments instead. As a veteran of the United States Air Force, and as a female of the Armed Services, I will not vote for Mitt Romney. How can a man who “claims” to love our Country seek deferments in order to fight for her?
Though an early supporter of the Vietnam War, Romney avoided military service at the height of the fighting after high school by seeking and receiving four draft deferments, according to Selective Service records. They included college deferments and a 31-month stretch as a “minister of religion” in France, a classification for Mormon missionaries that the church at the time feared was being overused. The country was cutting troop levels by the time he became eligible for the draft, and his lottery number was not called.
