Draft-Dodger Trump Said Sleeping Around Was My 'Personal Vietnam' (Tim Mak, 2/16/16, Daily Beast)

In a 1997 interview with shock jock Howard Stern, Trump talked about how he had been "lucky" not to have contracted diseases when he was sleeping around.

"I've been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It's scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era," Trump said in a video that resurfaced Tuesday on Buzzfeed, "It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier."

It wasn't the only time the Republican frontrunner for president would liken his personal life to wartime service: Trump has claimed that his military-themed boarding school education was essentially equivalent to having being trained in the military.
