I am writing a fictional story about a korean war army vet in the 50s and am wondering if anyone can spare some info on the draft back then. When and how was the draft enstated? For how long was the draftee in the army? Was a soldier's length of enrollment really stretched out by the army, like they make it look in the movies? Any info would really help. Want to get it right! Thanks
