The last U.S. draftee reported for duty in 1973. However, the draft system remains in place and all 18 to 25 year-old U.S. male citizens and immigrants are legally required to register with the Selective Service System. Part I of Draftee includes a description of the personal journey of a draftee who survived combat in Vietnam. Part II includes a draftee’s perspective as to why and how the U.S. got into and eventually out of the War and how both the U.S. draft and the South Vietnamese draft influenced the outcome. Part III includes a review of military drafts and a proposal to replace the seriously flawed legacy Selective Service System with a policy that enables choice, celebration of citizenship, and promotes unity rather than divisiveness.
