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.

I know of two brothers from Ireland that came together to the US in the mid-60's. Not sure what type visa's they had but one went to work for the NYC School System and the other for a major NYC bank. They both received draft notice. One ignored it and returned to Ireland. The other accepted it and served in the US Army in Vietnam. He returned to NYC, went back to work for the bank, married, raised a family, retired from the bank, and moved back to Ireland. He collects a bank retirement and US Social Security.

I served in the US Navy Submarine Service (early to mid 60's) with at least one (from NYC) that said he was drafted into the US Army for two years at that time but he opted to enlist. in the US Navy for 4 years. Louis Salicrup (Sal) was his name.
