And Appearance. 21 South Federal By MAJOR THOMAS M. NIAL The army has a lot of men erving 2-year enlistments who tarted wearing the uniform after T une 24, 1947. That means, of course, that they do not have one full year of serv- ce before June 24, 1948. Without >ne full year's service before that date, says the draft act, a veteran s not automatically exempt from he draft. * So when these 2-year men get out of the army next summer, what happens to them? Do they ;et drafted back in again? Not if they join an organized reserve unit in their branch of the service. They are covered by the section of the draft act which says ;hat any veteran who served at east 90 days, but less than one year, between Sept. 16, 1940 and June 24, 1948, is exempt from the draft provided they join an organ- zed reserve unit. (Of course, any veteran who served more than 90 war-period days, between Pearl Harbor and V-J day, is entirely exempt from all draft responsibilities.) Joining an organized reserve unit means the veteran must attend weekly drill periods and 2 weeks of active duty training once a year. "Could Be Tough" Getting to tho^e weekly drills could be awfully tough for a man who lived way out in the sticks, or even 30 miles away from the nearest armory where drills are given. In fact, it could be impossible, as you can imagine. What about a case like that? Does that mean the veteran will be drafted? By no means. The draft act goes on to explain that in cases where an organized reserve unit is not "reasonably accessible" to the veteran he may join any reserve unit (not organized) of his branch of the service. Unorganized Unit The difference is that an unorganized unit requires no attendance for drills or training periods. It is strictly a paper outfit. However, some men, apparently, will not be able to join even an unorganized reserve unit of their branch of the service. The act goes on to explain that in cases where a veteran is not able to join such a unit, he can meet his draft responsibility by joining a reserve unit (not organized) of a branch of the service other than the one in which he served- Finally, even this last possibility may not be available to some veterans. In that case, the veteran does not have to join anything at all, and he still will not be drafted. Final Say The question now is: Who says whether an organized unit or a unit not organized is available to a veteran? Answer: Your local draft board. What if the board tells the veteran that such and such an organized unit is available to him and he must join it, but he feels it is not available in the sense of the law? If he can't persuade his local board to come around to his way of thinking, and he still re- fuses to join, then he can be whipped into the army through the draft just like that. The local selective service board has the final say on this. Only the army is affected by this, because the other services do not have any 2-year enlistment programs for non-veterans. Any one who serves 3 years automatically discharges all his military responsibilities. Receives Flowers From South Africa Goodell—Mrs. T. R.
