It isn't just being fat, it is a height and weight standard. If one doesn't reach, or exeeds that required standard, they are not eligible.
So in a way your right, however not exactly so. Super skinny people with no meat on their bones can dodge the draft also. However I do not advise over
eating, bulimia and or anorexia as a way to avoid anything. Some people are well suited for the military life but don't enlist, those are the ones
any draft or recruters target.
As for those who are willing but not able, there are non "Armed Forces Of The United States", available. I'm speaking of the people who decided
toorganise as apart of state militia, see minutemen for a united peoples front. Or even state or federal park, being a county ranger of the forest
service is something I did just prior to my enlistemnt. It wasn't anything gunho, bit it did make a difference being out in the woods. Some body has
to do it, and every one working together makes the difference.
Military, police, neighbor hood watch, volunteer red cross, school zone crossing guards are all everyone.
