As the draft numbers were being drawn and announced I remember thinking that this really didn’t mean anything, assuming the war would be over before I graduated in two years. So when my number came up as 28 I wasn’t too worried. However two years later it became a big deal. During my senior year I interviewed for jobs and specifically remember the recruiter from 3M telling me to come back to see him after I got out of the army. With a draft number so low, he wasn’t even going to waste the time to interview me. So after I graduated, I went back to live with my parents to wait for my induction notice. Luckily for me however, the legislation for the draft lapsed and by the time congress had renewed it, my year of elligibility had expired so I was able to interview for and get a job and get on with my life.
