Draft Letter Format info


For my English class, I have to write a draft letter. Could anyone give me an example of what one should look like?

A "draft letter" is nothing more than an introduction, body, and conclusion - unrefined, unedited. It's a showpiece of the intent of the final product, a looking glass, a fishbowl, if you will.

So the example is simply showing your boss what you intend to send so he or she can check the information to ensure your letter will say what he or she wants. The he or she will send it back to you for revision. Make sense?

Make a condensed version of what your teacher wants as far the subject material goes, check for spelling and grammar structure, type it up and hand it in.

You mean as in draft into the military?


I'm the bleeding heart liberal your mother warned you about.

Yes, that is what I mean. I assignment is to right a draft letter, drafting a character to go to Iraq. I could get technical and tell her the draft is all but gone for now..but I would like to pass this class.

You're going to have to ask someone who got drafted.

Unfortunately, I do not know anyone who got drafted.

You should probably ask her why the draft as pertaining to the war in Iraq is relevant to a high school English class. Smells a bit funny to me.

It's a fairly easy assignment, though. As far as I remember, it went something like this in Vietnam:

----------------------

To: (Recipient name, address)

Greeting:
You are hereby ordered for induction into the Armed Forces of the United States, and to report at (some place) on (some date) at (some time) for forwarding to an Armed Forces Induction Station.

(Signed by local board member)

----------------------

That's all they said. Write that up, and ask your teacher the purpose of the assignment, because for something that short, it sure isn't English.

EDIT: I was right - old draft notice can be found here.

Thank you for the information c/Commander. She told me she wants it to be a page typed..I don't think she has any understanding about what a draft letter is or how short one should be. The assignment is to draft a character out of a book my group is reading.

I should have explained myself better, by draft letter, I meant a letter involving the selective service.
