I agree 100% with Waylon Jenning's words below, "All the men, who couldn't fight, in a war that didn't seem right, you let them come home, America."   But, every draft dodger should have been made to stand in front of a Pat Tillman, looked him in the eye's and convinced him that they left because of their beliefs, and not that they were scared and afraid to die.  If they could not have convinced a Pat Tillman, without a doubt, that they left because of their beliefs, they should all have been locked up, and the key thrown away.  They deserved no more freedom or rights.
