This link discusses the thoughts around requiring a national service obligation for all citizens. What do you think?

SGM Erik Marquez - And some because the search does not provide good data for lack of proper indexiing of the data, or returning too many answers that are not valid, or a search failing to understand the full context of a question.

I wouldn’t want to serve next to anyone who didn’t want to serve.

Just my opinion, no knock to draftees from the past.

SFC Randy Hellenbrand - One of my favorite scifi movies...its a BUG Planet!!
A lot of people looked at the draft in 1968 as "the two year enlistment option" It don't bother me to get drafted, nor most of my friends. I just didn't want to enlist for 3 years and had no plan to stay to retirement. If I could do it all over? I would stay in for life, I like the discipline, the sets of rules etc. I also like Combat related action. (I was 11b).

SPC (Join to see) - I too was drafted for 2 years & likewise I didn't want to stay 3. I had no problem serving & never asked or looked at anyone whether they enlisted or were drafted... if they wanted me to know they would've told me. I definitely had no thoughts of staying in to retire... but admire those who did.
