Draft Card-Vietnam Era
This was the second Selective Service (Draft) classification card I received. It was issued in 1972. By then the Draft Lottery had taken place, and student deferments ended. I was fortunate to receive a high-end number, and therefore was reclassified in 1972 as 1-H which meant "Registrant Not Subject to Processing for Induction. Registrant is not subject to processing for induction until a draft is enacted. All current registrants are classified 1-H until they reach the age of exemption. They then receive the classification of 5-A.". On my original Draft Card, I was classified "1-S", student deferment. copyright: Marc Catone, 2011
