He Went in Bill's Place

eBook (PDF), 142 Pages
(2 Ratings)
Price: $4.40
Two boys grew up in Hope, Arkansas in the 1950s and 1960s. One became a hero in the service of his country and the other used every means available to him to evade his duty to his country. During the early nineties there was a popular bumper sticker that read, “Why is it that a veteran sleeps in a cardboard box while a draft dodger sleeps in the White House?” Every time that Bill Clinton evaded military service during the Vietnam War, someone else was sent in his place. This book parallels the lives of Bill Clinton, the draft dodger, the war protester, the skilled liar, with a fictitious person representing the man who was drafted in his place. For those who would sanction “draft dodging” during an “unpopular war” I would point out that for every coward who evaded service, some other mother’s son was sent in his place. Placing more value on one man’s life over another is unjustifiable.

    "I hope Bill Clinton reads this book!" The conflict in Viet Nam took many brave sons and daughters away from their homes and families and I am reminded of a quote, "All gave some, some gave all." I read "He went in Bill's Place" and wished with all my heart that I could put this novel right into Bill Clinton's hands with a command to read every word of it. It is high praise for any soldier who has served in combat and reminded me to do whatever I can to support our troops in the present conflict we're now faced with. War is hell and those of us that enjoy freedom need to be thankful for those who have paid the ulitmate price for us.
