    I believe this is accurate? Although I recieved a selective services enrollment form in the mail, I believe the policy is legally disabled people do not qualify!
    I have a heart murmur and suffer from occasional blackouts yay

    I doubt that the draft will ever come back into effect, I really don't see that happening for quite a while. As for serving the country....like i've said many a time before, if the cause was meaningful and i really thought we we're fighting the good fight...I'd sign up, no question.

    Hey, don't debate the law with me...you can look it up if you want though

    I assure you, it's legit. My dad's a lawyer, I double checked with him ^_~

    Figure it this way ~ Would you as a commander want ANY of his troops threatening others? Probably not, especially if they have had diagnoses like mine...They wouldn't allow me with a gun on the battlefield, especially if they knew I might pull the trigger on myself.

    Oh, yeah...occassional blackouts would probably prevent you from being drafted too. They don't want someone in infantry passing out in the middle of a raid now would they?

    I live right next to a marine base, called Camp Pendleton, we get a lot of Marines in town...so I hear a lot of the news on what is going on.

    ...No draft yet...not that there ever will be one necessarily. Just the one that we have been talking about in this thread!

    Good, a stand-up guy. I was starting to think there was a shortage around here.

    I agree with all that. Additionally draft dodgers should be publicly brutalized then castrated, for failing to be a man. A bit brutal I know but I have a thing for cowards. no, not C.O.'s but cowards. There is a difference.

    Thinking is the leading cause of death among the stupid.

    What about any ladies? JK

    Of course I would serve, I wouldn't be called though (note the lady part of my sig). Now if my husband was called I won't lie, I would be concerned, I would miss him, but I would also be proud of him.

    Re: The Draft ahhh!!

    I have no fear of that....I've been told by MANY military men that unless DEAD bodies were needed for a beach front, I'm not military material.

    But seriously, If I was drafted I would go. I'd hate every minute but I would do it. I have the deepest, most heartfelt respect for military personell becuase they are willingly doing a job that I would never want to do and am not cut out for. I fully admit that. So, I do my part at home by supporting the troops and voting in politicians who also support them.
