In a new report by the Center for National Policy, recommendations are laid out with mandatory national service as the key issue. Evidently, seven years of war have begun to strain the all-volunteer army. Also, it seems like the idea of going to war has made it harder to recruit. Who would have known?
The report suggests creating a mandatory national service program which would give young Americans the “choice” of joining the army as opposed to some other form of service. President-elect Obama has already proposed such an idea, yet he was forced to label it a voluntary service program so as to not lose votes. This begs the question, “Is this the new draft?”
