SGM (Join to see), I definitely remember the draft, but I'm just a little too young to have had a number. The draft was all over the news, along with Vietnam, when I was growing up. (Also, draft dodgers, draft card burning, fleeing the draft by traveling/moving to Canada ... just a couple of things the draft reminds me of.)

I had a high number and would not have been drafted in 1972-75. I remember when my roommate in College was drafted! I was also in ROTC but he was not.

I was drafted in 1967 before there were numbers. People told me to join the reserves or guard or I would go to Vietnam. I opted for shortest commitment which was two years as draftee. MOS was 11bravo and Vietnam was my assignment.
Cut time to 21 months with early out to go to college. Would do it again.
