Staying Out of a Draft

Happy to post Kickstarter vid for planned doc on the Vietnam generation (that would be me) and the draft.  I'd still a little draft counseling myself back in the day.  Film focuses on the many who resisted.  The eternal problem, of course, was that someone (perhaps less savvy and from poor background) had to go in their place.  And all college students got four-year deferments in any case.  And today?  No draft, and a force again largely made up of young people from non-privileged backgrounds.
