Best Answer

All able bodied (healthy) US males had to register for the draft (conscription). Registration was required before the Vietnam War.

Once a man reported, he was examined by military medical personnel, mentally tested (written test), and then put on a chartered bus to the nearest US Army Fort to commence Basic Combat Infantryman Training, nicknamed boot camp. His obligation to the United States government was two years of active duty and four years of reserve. Today, it's an eight-year obligation, if needed, via registration.

How come president Clinton went to college and not Vietnam?

Clinton's political opponents charge that to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War during his college years, he used the political influence of a U.S. Senator, who employed him as an aide. Col. Eugene Holmes, an Army officer who was involved in Clinton's case, issued a notarized statement during the 1992 presidential campaign: "I was informed by the draft board that it was of interest to Senator Fullbright's office that Bill Clinton, a Rhodes Scholar, should be admitted to the ROTC program... I believe that he purposely deceived me, using the possibility of joining the ROTC as a ploy to work with the draft board to delay his induction and get a new draft classification."
