    Which brings me to my own 8th grade class today. We are studying WWII. While discussing preparedness, rather lack thereof, we were talking of current times. Question from the teacher, ;) , "How many would consider joining the military from high school or college"? 8 out of 24, 2 girls. "How many would like to hear about opportunities from the military"? 15 out of 24. "How many think there may be a draft within 5 years"? 24 out of 24. "How many would serve willingly if there were a draft"? 24 of 24. "Females are not drafted. How many women would volunteer if a draft were instituted"? 4 out of 10.

    Something to think about.
