Best Answer

No, this is an internet myth, and it's not very logical. During the last war when there was a draft-- Vietnam-- in the 1960s, Barack Obama was a young child (he was born in 1961). By the time he was in his teens and old enough to join the military, the Vietnam War had been over for a while. There were no other wars at that time, and there was no draft either, since the US had gone to an all-volunteer force. Barack Obama went to college, and did not "dodge" anything.

No- he had no reason to. The US went to an all volunteer military before President Obama reached draft age.

Did Barack Hussein Obama dodge the Draft by relating to Indonesia?

Barack Obama was six years old when he lived in Indonesia. Even if there was still a draft (which there no longer was), he was too young for it. So, no, he didn't "dodge" the draft. Also, had no choice about going to Indonesia. He spent his first five years in Hawaii, but when his mom remarried, his step-dad was Indonesian, so the family moved there for the next four years. He then returned to Hawaii to finish his middle school and high school years.
