The military draft is currently under review-
ARLINGTON, Va. — Three years ago, Congress created a commission to help it answer a pair of questions: Is the Selective Service System, which requires 18-year-old men to register for a potential military draft, working?

I’m hoping they change the rules to require ALL 18 years olds register for the draft, regardless of sex. This will give women the ‘full’ equity that they have wanted. And along with it comes those pesky requirements that those who fail to register with the Selective Service System at their 18th birthday can be denied public benefits such as federal employment and student loans.
Frankly this is long overdue. It should have been done in the mid-80s when Schroeder et al made the big push for women in the military with no restrictions. Why should half the population get off scot free?
