    Youngsters are still required to register with Selective Service when they turn 18.

    On another board, someone commented that he hadn't thought of that angle. My response: "I wonder if Panetta thought of that angle before he removed the ban. It may come back to bite him."

    I wonder how many exemptions Obama and his liberal pals will hand out on this one. You can bet your ass this won't apply to Sasha or Mahlia.

    Women aren't eligible for the draft because the law specifically excludes us. It would take an act of congress in order for women to be included.

    Women make up 14% of the military. Many good possibilities here.

    Then it's not going to take long for the law to be changed, IMO.
