Biden had asthma as a teenager, which is why he was classified not available for service


lol...what a crock! Bumbling Biden health wasn't all that bad since he was a star athlete during his HS years ...
"Biden attended the Archmere Academy in Claymont,[13] where he was a standout halfback/wide receiver on the high school football team; he helped lead a perennially losing team to an undefeated season in his senior year.[10][14] He played on the baseball team as well.[10]"
"Biden attended the University of Delaware in Newark, where he was more interested in sports and socializing than in studying,[10] although his classmates were impressed by his cramming abilities.[15] He played halfback with the Blue Hens freshman football team.[14]"
"Biden received five student draft deferments during this period, with the first coming in late 1963 and the last in early 1968, at the peak of the Vietnam War.[27]

And then finally...

"In April 1968, he was reclassified by the Selective Service System as not available for service due to having had asthma as a teenager.[27][28]"

Would you like to try again to offer excuses for bumbling Biden's 5 deferments?
