RESULTS OF THE FIRST VIETNAM WAR DRAFT LOTTERY HELD DECEMBER 1, 1969

The highest number drafted in this group of men was 195. My number, based on my birthday, was 38, which meant I would definitely be drafted when I either left college or graduated (which I did in the summer 1972, from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee). I eventually served some 18 months as a conscientious objector in Chattanooga, Tennessee).

On December 1, 1969, the Selective Service System of the United States conducted two lotteries to determine the order of call to military service in the Vietnam War for men born from 1944 to 1950. These lotteries occurred during “the draft”—a period of conscription, controlled by the President, from just before World War II to 1973.

The lottery numbers assigned in December 1969 were used during calendar year 1970 both to call for induction and to call for physical examination, a preliminary call covering more men.

One response to “Results of the first Vietnam War draft lottery held December 1, 1969

    I was in this first draft. Born on Jan 31 after 10 p.m. That put me at number 211 in the draft. Had I been born two hours later on Feb 1, I would have been number 86. What a difference a couple of hours made – the difference between being drafted for war and being able to stay at my first job after graduation from college. Knew several friends who were drafted and didn’t make it back. One of those life changing events over which you have no control. Later worked with a Vietnam veteran for many years who suffered from phychological problems because of his tour of duty. Turned to alcohol, had a troubled marriage, and only saw the worst in every person. I saw first hand how the war had made him bitter and depressed. I have often wondered what would have become of me had I been born two hours later.
