Realistically, any momentum to push towards including women in the draft is all highly notional is would more likely be a process of inclusion without any actual substance. That is because we are an all volunteer force, which relies more on incentives and inclusivity to recruit than for strength in numbers. You also tend to have a higher quality of soldier whom are there willingly.

But maybe? I just feel like the draft and including women in the draft, is so beyond any modern effort to amassing a force necessary to fight a war. It’s almost too unnecessary to include, but would, in my eyes at least, be good to consider. Good question though.

I appreciate the idea that a draft would diminish the quality of Soldier than one who volunteers willingly.

Could a female Soldier avoid the draft, without repercussions by getting pregnant?

I’d almost guarantee that a potential Soldier would be able to be disqualified for being pregnant…but more likely a deferment if anything.

Considering the current eligible recruitment pool of the US is somewhere like 30-40% of military aged civilians in the US. I’d imagine if the draft was implemented, it would have to have much more relaxed standards

CPT Angela Wilder - I for one would hope so. taking 18-35 year old female and forcing them in to the Military in a time of war would hurt long term military readiness...... simply put NO KIDS NO MILITARY
