Just an observation[edit]

I notice Lee was born Oct 1942.... I didn't see him in Vietnam with me? It's much easier to sing and wear a flag than to fight for it.

Shakespeare said it best in his famous St. Crispin's Day Speech delivered by Henry V before the Battle of Agincourt:

From this day to the ending of the world,

But we in it shall be remembered,

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.

For he today that sheds his blood with me

Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,

This day shall gentle his condition.

And gentlemen in England now abed

Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,

And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks

That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's Day. The-Expose-inator (talk) 19:38, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Sorry to break up your poetic moment, but here's an explanation http://www.snopes.com/music/artists/greenwood.asp --CutOffTies (talk) 21:20, 15 September 2012 (UTC)
Don't you know, man? Facts don't matter to The-Expose-inator! He speaks from his heart and his gut. 75.164.252.87 (talk) 18:54, 16 September 2012 (UTC)

Sorry but the facts are, your draft board doesn't just assign you a 3A deferment, you got to fight to avoid the draft to get one. And when you do, then someone less eligible gets to go in your place. I hardly find that admirable! The-Expose-inator (talk) 23:13, 5 October 2012 (UTC)

Okay The-Expose-inator, what is your proof that Lee Greenwood "fought" to get his classification, or that anyone had to fight to receive the 3A classification? 75.164.252.87 (talk) 19:57, 14 October 2012 (UTC)
