A couple of observations. Again, Red is too short to be 10 years old. His head does not even come up to his dad’s waist. Now, this strip is set in 1970. Assuming his father is now about 35, he would have been born in 1935. Too young both for WWII and Korea. As for Vietnam, the first draft lottery was in 1969 by which time, Red’s father would have been 34. Don’t see how he could have been drafted under any circumstances.
