What's a 1A? Is it related to the draft?
Yes. And of course what we know now that they didn't know then is that D-Day was only a few months away, which may be the reason for the sudden expanded call up.Here's a list of the current classifications. I don't know if they've changed that much since WWII. Missing from the list is Woody Allen's 4-P.
