    Do the NARA enlistment records include Draftees?

      I was wondering whether the enlistment records from NARA include draftees. This seems to be the case as draftees had a serial number starting with "3" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Service_number_(United_States_Army)?fbclid=IwAR1JNtZnGjUX0x2Xhz-eoEnnaoagNJyZ6bU9HnSPfoCLN… )

       

      However I find that sometime some terms are used interchangeably, for example enlisted is often used as a synonym for volunteer. Hence my doubt is whether the NARA records include the universe of service men or only volunteers.

       

      Thank you for your help!
