Ted Nugent - Activism - Military

Military

In 2006, an interviewer from the British newspaper The Independent questioned Nugent about a 1977 interview in High Times magazine in which Nugent admitted taking elaborate steps to avoid the Vietnam draft. In the interview Nugent says, contrary to the story in High Times, that "I had a 1Y . I enrolled at Oakland Community College.". However, the Selective Service classification for student deferment is actually 2-S, and medical deferment is 1-Y. A copy of Nugent's Selective Service record shows that he had at separate times both a 1-Y medical deferment and 2-S student deferment. His last examination in 1972 designated him 4-F, lending credence to the evasion story. . "... if I would have gone over there, I'd have been killed, or I'd have killed, or I'd kill all the hippies in the foxholes ... I would have killed everybody," he told the Detroit Free Press in an interview published July 15, 1990.

Famous quotes containing the word military:

    There was somewhat military in his nature, not to be subdued, always manly and able, but rarely tender, as if he did not feel himself except in opposition. He wanted a fallacy to expose, a blunder to pillory, I may say required a little sense of victory, a roll of the drum, to call his powers into full exercise.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    “My ancestors were all famous for military genius.”
    My Lady smiled graciously. “It often runs in families,” she remarked: “just as a love for pastry does.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    My faith is the grand drama of my life. I’m a believer, so I sing words of God to those who have no faith. I give bird songs to those who dwell in cities and have never heard them, make rhythms for those who know only military marches or jazz, and paint colours for those who see none.
    Olivier Messiaen (1908–1992)
