13. Actually it won't
Edited on Fri Apr-25-08 07:33 AM by NNN0LHI
Having a draft didn't keep us out of Vietnam.

My experience has shown that there are lots of parents who wouldn't mind giving up one of their kids (especially one with issues) to the war effort. I seen that happening with my own eyes during Vietnam.

I still see that occurring now without a draft.

Two thirds of Vietnam vets volunteered as you did, didn't they?
