During the Vietnam War What was the draft classification 1Y?

1Y was used to classify men who were to be called only in case of War or National Emergency. The usual reason was some physical condition which would make military training likely unsuccessful. I knew two guys who were 1Y, they were massively overweight. One guy's nickname was "the House", he was something like 6 ft, 6 inches and was way over 250 lbs.

Not sure but that draft only lasted from 1966 - Fall 1967.

Can only serve in the event of a National emergency. Government later put people into other classifications after sometime in 1971.
