Easiest bone to intentionally break SAFELY ?

I don't know where to post this however this is my situation.My country has forced military service where its either 1 year or 3 years depending on the major you graduated with and depending on your contacts. I'm afraid I might get the 3 years which is basically career suicide (I'm a mechanical engineering graduate) plus I'm the only one taking care of my mom.
Basically I need them to postpone my service due to medical reasons and the only way is through a broken bone. So what's the easiest bone to break safely and how? Please do realize I want to avoid any further complication and would like to recover 100 %. I was thinking of wrist maybe ?

I would strongly advise against attempting such an action. It may result in permanent deformity specially with respect to the wrist.
