I was lucky.  I was in college with the usual deferment.  I got a "good" number.  So the draft did not affect me.  Oddly enough, almost all my close high school buddies and my four college roommates had high numbers.  In fact, I was the lowest of the high numbers.  The lowest number had a religious deferment, as he was going to seminar after graduation.  The next lowest was a physics major.  After basics, they sent him to radar school.  So he spent his weekdays at SUNY and the weekends in Jersey manning a radar station.  I knew very few guys who went to Nam and even fewer who died in Nam.  I knew no one who evaded the draft.
