        The Draft | On Two Fronts: Latinos & Vietnam

        This educational module adapted from the film On Two Fronts: Latinos & Vietnam examines the draft. During the Vietnam War, the US government decided service would be selective and certain categories of young people would serve their country in other ways, but in practice the burden of combat service fell to young men with less privilege. This module will prompt students to think critically about the benefits and pitfalls of selective compulsory military service during the Vietnam War, and how it differed from the notion of ’universal service.
