Yes. Initially there was a draft where all males of the appropriate age were eligible for the draft unless they were physically or mentally unfit, or had a deferment (formal excuse) such as being a college student. Later the Draft Board started a lottery, all were given numbers drawn from birth dates. Then they started to draft at #1, then 2, and so on until they had enough people to staff the military for the war effort.

During the cold war, the mobilization of military reserves was considered an escalation; which could be a signal for raising the ante for a larger war (global threatening). Consequently, Vietnam had to be fought by draftees (and draft induced volunteers).

American men were drafted until American involvement ended. The "draft" ended in the early 70's, shortly after the war.

Men registered for the draft; then they received a letter in the mail.
