0. No soldiers have been drafted into the military since 1972. However, you may be confusing "getting drafted" with "stop loss." At one point the military had a policy of disallowing retirement for some service members due to their military occupation. Others have been called back for active duty service after getting out of the military.
There were two ways to avoid military service for Northern males. First, if drafted, a male could pay a fee to not enter the military. However, even if done, his name immediately became eligible for any future draft which rendered this as only a temporary solution. For a permanent solution, the draftee could hire another male to perform his service and thus gain his permanent excuse from service himself.
They simply feared induction into the military, and if they were too old for military service or otherwise unqualified for service (or had already served, thus being veterans) then they feared for their nephews, sons, grandsons, cousins, younger brothers, best friends, etc. being drafted into military service. This is why they wanted the war to end.
It depends on the your Nation's rules, but in the US there is something called concientious objector status which may prevent an individual from being drafted because of their religious beliefs. In many European countries that have required military service, people from pacifist religions can request to perform another form of national service such as cleaning swamps, etc. in lieu of fighting.

There was no draft just for the Vietnam War. The post WWII draft ran continuously from 1948 to 1973 without interruption. According to the Selective Service System, from 1954 through 1963 (peacetime) they drafted 1,327,343 men for military service, from 1964 through 1973, they drafted 1,840,650 men.
The United States had created the Selective Service Act, requiring all men in a certain age range to register in the Army/Military, but didn't necesarily meant that you would be drafted. As a result, 3 million men had registered, and only 1 million had been drafted to train and prepare for war The United States had created the Selective Service Act, requiring all men in a certain age range to register in the Army/Military, but…
Does the bible say that if you are planning to join the military that you cant get married till 3 years later?
There is nothing in the Bible that says a person is not allowed to get married for a period of time, once one has joined the military. On the other hand, the Bible does say that a recently married man should not be drafted into the service. Deuteronomy 24:5 says that if a man is recently married, he is not supposed to be drafted into military service (or to any other duty) for a period…
There is ALREADY a "draft" in place; it's called the Selective Service system, and it's been around since before World War II. At age 18, all males are required to register with Selective Service. Since women are not required to register, this is rank sexism. There have been no men actually drafted into the military since the late 1970's, and there is precisely zero chance (barring a major attack on the US and an actual…
