I was in the Army when the draft ended and the all-volunteer military began. I was dubious at the time about whether or not an all volunteer military would work. I have to say that I am very impressed with the all-volunteer military but I am more concerned that only 1% of Americans serve in the military and this one percent gets unfairly recycled 3, 4, 5 times through combat tours. Everyone benefits from our military so everyone should be subject to serving. If a person got drafted it would be for two years (regardless of whether or not the conflict has ended). One-half of 1% of the population should not carry 100% of the military burden. It should be a shared burden because it is too easy for a president to send someone else's kid to war. If we commit troops to a conflict ("a conflict" would be that the troops are stationed outside of the United States and they come under fire from a hostile force) we would immediately reinstitute the draft. The draft would stay in effect until the troops have not been under fire for a period of 90 consecutive days. The draft would apply to both men and women between the ages of 18 and 25 and there would be no deferments.
