: Why didn't Indiana Jones get drafted into the war? Was he one of the fortunate people? Did his numeber come in too late? One would think that he had a good chance of being drafted. Wasn't he drafted into WWI and was sent to Europe? How come he didn't get picked for WWII? Lucky dog, isn't he?
My dad didn't get drafted for Vietnam because he was a teacher at the time, and that apparently made him exempt. I guess that if all the teachers got drafted there wouldn't be anyone left here to teach the kids of America! Indy, being a professor, may have been in a similar situation, assuming the draft worked the same way back then.
