"drafted into recruits instead of this family" #general

ilyaz <ilyaz@...>

Studying some Revision Lists, I found an entry saying "O.B.N.(name not
related to the name in the Revision List) was caught without a passport and
was drafted into recruits instead of this family".
I've heard about this practice, but am curious - why this particular person
was drafted instead of this particular family? Was there bribe involved?
Some other arrangements?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
