The 1960s were at times tumultuous, irrational, outlandish, and
just plain crazy. The Vietnam War dominated the news and divided
the country. Yet thousands of young men were summonsed
and dutifully filled the ranks of the military. Judge Don Overby’s
recounting of his own experience in the military draft of the
’60s clearly depicts the routine yet chaotic day-to-day details of
regular young men caught up in the polarized military conflict
of the Cold War. A fascinating read!
