Draft Dodger
Draft evasion
Draft evasion
is any successful attempt to elude a government-imposed obligation to serve in the military forces of one's nation. Sometimes draft evasion involves refusing to comply with the military draft laws (formally known as conscription laws) of one's nation.[1] Illegal draft evasion is said to have characterized every military conflict of the 20th and 21st centuries.[2] Such evasion is generally considered to be a criminal offense,[1] and laws against it go back thousands of years.[3] There are many draft evasion practices. Those that manage to adhere to or circumvent the law, and those that do not involve taking a public stand, are sometimes referred to as draft avoidance. Those that involve overt lawbreaking or taking a public stand are sometimes referred to as draft resistance
