Lets say there's a fictional doomsday scenario in which the US is being invaded. The Draft has already been brought back, but it's not enough. Could the law be changed to forcibly call back veterans who have already met their seven year obligation? Say everyone under the age of 45 or something like that? Would it take an act of congress or could executive authority alone be enough to do something like that? Silly question I know, just a shower thought that popped up yesterday, and I'm curious to see what you all have to say about it.

Depends on your circumstances.
If you are in the Retired Reseve, you bet.
If you are out all the way, it would take an act of Congress.
Having said that, if stuff goes that sideways, I will find the Army, not wait for the Army to find me.

SSG Jeff Dancinger - I think all of us vets who worked LEO would be there, call or no call, and We'd be Effective from day 1 because we're used to taking initiative and kept our skills up.

They can call me out of 17 years of retirement, if they so desire. And I would go immediately, if not sooner!!!
