      In the UK (and by extrapolation the US?) a number of trades and
      professions were excluded from military service/conscription in WW1
      and WW2 because of the nature of their work.

      This included certain food producers and farmers, engineers, doctors
      and medical students, etc. I'm sure the army office can give you a
      list of reasons for exemption.

      Forgive me for suggesting that other reasons would include physical
      or mental discapacities.

      Happy hunting
