CHICAGO – Former Republican candidate and West Point graduate, Jim Nalepa, has narrated an ad by Patriotic Veterans questioning Donald Trump's deferments during the Vietnam War.

Despite Donald Trump’s claim that he avoided serving in the Vietnam War solely due to a high draft number, Selective Service records show that the presidential aspirant actually received a series of student deferments while in college followed by a medical deferment after graduation that helped spare him from being drafted during the war. When previously asked about his five deferments, Trump told reporters that his disqualifying medical condition was a bone spur on one of his feet, although he couldn't remember which one.

The ad is currently running on 46 stations, and can be heard in the audio clip below:
