I was having to fight my way into the Induction center to begin my enlistment in the US Navy. 14 Oct 1969 was declared a national "Moratorium day". There were massive demonstrations at every draft center in the nation. In Portland Or, where I was, there was a huge crowd blocking the main entrance and my ability to get in. Someone then opened a side door near where I was and I managed to beat the crowd of protesters and enter the building. There were open offers from the protesters in the crowd for trips to Canada rather then going into the building. But I had the GI Bill and my college education in mind and would not even consider such offers.
