I dont think they should have to, now I do have a lot of respect for people who enlist. But not everyone is cut out for the military. Plus I dont want to be forced into it, because I wouldnt perform as well as if I joined voluntarily. I want to enlist though.
I believe it should always be a Voluntary Service. I respect and appreciate everyone who has Served our Country, State side or overseas. If our Government decided to make it Mandatory, it should not be limited to able bodied Males, only. It should be all able bodied People. But that's not a Democracy, so it won't happen anyway. Extreme measures may once again create a Draft, though I hope not, but should it occur, again, it should be People, not just males.
Yes, I think there should be a draft. Even if only for two years. Everyone I knew from my era (Viet Nam) went off to war (at least males). Grows them up real fast. And the ones during non-war times learn responsibility, etc. It's can really be bad, but we NEED armed forces so that we can STAY free. (And help free-loaders grow up). As long as we're doing okay, we're good as we are, but as soon as a bigger army/marine corp is needed, the we need the draft.
