What Would You Do If Your Government Ordered You to Fight in a War You Opposed?
The Draft and the Vietnam Generation is a soon to be released documentary that tells the stories of young men who faced being drafted to fight in a war they opposed. Their resistance to being drafted not only changed their lives, but shaped American history.
The revolt against the Vietnam-era draft was an outstanding episode in the moral history of the United States. Beth Sanders’ documentary shows how the draft clouded the life of the country and accurately conveys a sense of how so many struggled to get out from under that cloud. "
