It was the 1960s – and throughout the United States, opposition to the War in Vietnam was growing.  The Draft forced young men to make a choice about their own participation in the war. And many chose to resist.

On today’s Making Contact we look back at the resistance to the Draft to the War in Vietnam.  What form did that resistance take?  And what lessons are people bringing to building resistance to war and empire among soldiers today, in the absence of an official draft?
