A buddy of mine said he was drafted into the army, and while in the indoctro center a marine sergeant came down the line and tapped every second guy on the shoulder and said, "Come with me, you're drafted into the marine corps." He hated every second he was in the crotch. I was drafted into the army and, for the most part, liked every second I was in, with a few exceptions.

Half of the Marine recruits in 1969 were draftees.

In the mid 60's some drafted into the Army for 2 years were offered a 3 year enlistment in the Navy instead.
