    We had a few draftees in the Marine Corps in Nam, (42,633) I couldn’t tell the difference, other than they were short timers when the got drafted to my nineteen year old eyes.

    Here’s a bit of history as well, during WW2 93% of the Army was draftees, Hhmm…seems that they did a pretty good job.


    Shall we go back a bit further, say WW1? According to a report on a VFW site, during the years of Sept. 5, 1917 to Nov. 11, 1918, 2,810,296 men were drafted into the Army, according to the same source that made 72% of the service. Oh, one of them was a lad from Tennessee that had a grand total of nine months of schooling; his name was Sergeant Alvin York.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
