As a Draftee (1970), I have noted that there is a huge difference between "then" and "now". The primary difference being the demographics. Not a lot of people in the enlisted group from families with money. Mostly youngsters who can't get a job anywhere else. The draft impacted all of society. Now, with the "all voluntary" military, The kids whose parents vote for wars don't need to enlist... Unless it is an officer commission.
