: : 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.
I must have missed something, and anymore that doesn't surprise me, but where has it been written or implied Indy DIDN'T serve in the military in some fashion during WWII? I have no recollection of information regarding his stories except prior to 1940, except recent fan fiction currently being written. Please enlighten me, someone. thanks and Regards. Michaelson
