Paul Did Volunteer

When he got his draft card, it was not a given that he would actually be drafted. He volunteered to ensure he could enlist as a medic and not have to shoot to kill. He said he could never shoot another human being, and didn't want to take the chance of being ordered to do so. When actually drafted, rather than volunteering, one didn't have the option to enlist as a medic.
