Lives revolved around themselves being inducted into the military to fight the Vietnam War. Marriages, Children, Careers, College, Buying a home, Buying a new car, establising a business or a relationship other than a marriage...all revolved around getting drafted into the military. The government conscripted 40,000 men a MONTH, that is alot of disrupted lives!
