    There are lots of veterans on this board.

    I served from 1975 to 1979 in Headquarters Battery in the 3d Battalion 16th Field Artillery 8th Infantry Division in Baumholder, Germany as an 82 Charlie (Forward Observer) and later in Military Intelligence, S2.

    I totally believe in the Draft and believe ALL Americans should have the opportunity to serve their country.


    of interest:


    According to an analysis of campaign contributions by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics, Democrat Barack Obama has received nearly six times as much money from troops deployed overseas at the time of their contributions than has Republican John McCain,

    I fully agree! You are one of the few who understands the benefits of a Peoples' Army over the semi-mercenary Government's Army we have now.

    If the draft were in place Bush could not have gotten approval to launch the Iraq invasion.

    You mean like the draft was in place and we didn't go to Vietnam?
    One of my supervisors was a Vietnam vet and he said the draftees were the worst troops. They didn't want to do anything or listen to anyone.

    You lefties want the draft because you think it's a way to fuck up the Military.
