Irritating all within earshot
Boortz used to claim he had a 4-F draft deferment. Frank Kaner, a disabled former Marine, didn't buy that. And he didn't appreciate Boortz's disdain for John Kerry's service, either. So he looked into the records and unearthed the truth, which we published in 2005. Boortz was in ROTC for a while, which bought him a 1-D deferment — but he then dropped out, and neglected to tell Texas A&M. He then picked up a 3-A for his procreational prowess, before it was too late.
