Did you know I was considered a “Draft Dodger”? As I wheeled up in my wheelchair to the Army Recruiter at my high school, I tried to tell him I really wanted to join, but I think the wheelchair might be a problem..
When the Army recruiter called me on the phone, he asked me again, did I want to join? And, I said, “I don’t think you guys will want me because I’m in a wheelchair….”
They told me to go back to the school and go to the Recruiter at the school and tell him that I wanted to join. So I did.
And the Recruiter at school said that they probably didn’t mean to call me, being in the wheelchair and all…..
