I had a great uncle with similarly short service, but in WWI. His asthma came out (I think he's tried to hide it so he could get in the fight) and they sent him home.

A friend of mine's dad also wanted into Vietnam, but his superiors found out in training that he had a wife and 6 young kids at home so they sent him back.
