Think About It Now

Here is a fellow who received his draft card a year earlier than I did...  1- H status means he was not drafted but available until he turned 26.  Mine is 1 - O, the most radical conscientious objector status (women and children first.)  Wikipedia has a nice rundown on the selective service.  Note how the names collected today are turned over to the advertising arm of the armed forces recruiters.  Today is easy to tailor and ad to prey on a particular persons preferences.  I'd like to see screenshots of ads various young men get, and comments as to what the young men find appealing in the ads.

Without a draft, there will never be an anti-war movement.

Burning draft cards.
