For many years, Donald J. Trump, asserted that it was “ultimately” a high draft lottery number that kept him out of the Vietnam War, rather than a medical condition. But his Selective Service records, obtained from the National Archives, suggest otherwise. He had been medically exempted for more than a year when the draft lottery commenced in December 1969, well before he received what he has described as his “phenomenal” draft number. The Times has created a composite image from scans of the document from the National Archives.

Both skated through the draft and the Vietnam years based on bullshit medical 'problems'. Both are 'chickenhawks.'

Mr. Trump has described the condition as heel spurs, which are protrusions caused by calcium built up on the heel bone, treated through stretching, orthotics or sometimes surgery.
Mr. Trump said that he could not recall exactly when he was no longer bothered by the spurs, but that he had not had an operation for the problem.
“Over a period of time, it healed up,” he said.
The GOP version of "at this point what difference does it make."
And this is the fellow who will Make America Great Again by teaching America's enemies a lesson. And how will he do that? By sending our kids off to war.
Donald "Heel Spurs" Trump? Commander-in-Chief?
OTOH, perhaps we can look at the Heeling of Trump as a miracle, wrought by God, who had Great Plans for the man, to lead us out of the darkness, and who could not allow his Chosen One to end up as fertilizer in a Southeast Asian rice paddy.
