Did the same. June 3, 1963. Left school that day. Jumped on the Jerome Ave. train and went to my draft board on Gerard Avenue. Proudly brought my birth certificate, which they stamped and signed so I could use it until I received the "official" card in the mail. Went directly to our local bar, Angie's at Kingsbridge Rd. and Bailey Ave., and Had my first "legal" beer. And to think, only a few years after that guys were actually burning their draft cards. I still have mine.
