I think there should be a system of national service for all which could be performed in many different ways. Perhaps a ranking system where military service earned the highest points towards fulfillment, but a variety of community services, on a part time basis could earn enough points over a longer time period. We should all be required to give something back. We all have different talents. I think a draft should be ok in the most serious of times, but the women need to register, too. Community service could begin in high school. Would be good to get the kids off of the technology and over themselves.

Two years of service to the country should be required, but it does not have to be in the military. Working with inner city youth, updating infrastructure, etc. should be able to count.

@9PG3TZCDemocrat from Rhode Island answered…3mos

No, but military service should be an option to replace jail time for non-violent criminals.

Yes, but women should have the option to serve outside of the military and anyone in the military under these conditions should only be mobilized to a combat zone as a last resort.

If physically able be trained in military service and utilized in protecting homeland, assisting in natural emergencies, assisting border patrol and with Volunteer Military services in case of major conflict. If physically unable or has true religious objections, serve equal time at equal pay doing community services, and other non military assistance to the country.

No, service should be a choice instead of an obligation but if the 18-year-old has some minor offenses military service in training and or skill development should be an option instead of prosecution or a consequence

No. Slavery by any name or in any form is reprehensible and criminal.

No, but the draft should still apply, with the ability to use talents for more than just bullet-sponges.

@9H2Y4MBWomen’s Equality from Kansas answered…3mos

i think there is many problems that we would encounter but at least one year of service is not a terrible idea.

No, it goes against our rights for freedom and basic human rights. You cannot force someone into such an occupation, they might have families or other deep issues. Even for the country's safety, drafting is a last resort and people should not be forced and required that kind of job.

I feel that joining the military should be a choice. But I also feel as that criminals should have to pay for they crimes and forced to go to war if deemed necessary. “If a war breaks out”

@9GSHFLHVeteran from Alabama answered…3mos

All US citizens should be required to serve our nation in some form or fashion, whether it be military or civil. I believe a 3-5 year minimum would do justice, seeing as training itself takes time.

@9GS4WL4Libertarian from Washington answered…3mos

No, we should return to the draft so that the government requires public support to continue a war.

@9GRZ8LGLibertarian from Texas answered…3mos

There should be a service of some sort requirement. However, this could be military, peace corps, WHO, USPHS, civilian conservation corps, Red Cross/crescent to name a few options.

@9GRS8ZSGreen from Ohio answered…3mos

@9GPNX7PWorking Family from Kansas answered…3mos

No, but those who choose to serve should be given training applicable to life beyond the military and benefits should be reformed to make the processes more accessible.
