The Selective Service Act

Question Description: The Selective Service Act was created during World War I to temporarily increase the size of the United States army.

In recent years, some Americans have argued that the draft should be reinstated. After reading your text, answer the following questions: Do you favor or oppose instituting a draft? Does a draft offer any benefits to the country? If a draft was created, what would this new draft look like? Who would be included/ not included? answer these questions in the Discussion Board. Explain your answer fully and cite outside sources as necessary.

To receive full credit for this assignment your post must:

1. Address the questions asked in the paragraph above in at least a 300-word post and cite all outside sources appropriately
2. In your initial post, include at least one interesting question the readings raised for you

Answer preview

Significant benefits will be reaped from the new draft. Individuals with professional skills in technology, medicine, engineering, science, and mathematics will be adopted into the system without age or sex. It will also improve the attitude of young men as they join the military deliberately without being forced. It will be more feasible to induct any gender as mobilization becomes specialties-oriented. Accountability and personnel management in the army will also improve significantly. The new draft will strengthen the marketing and recruitment procedure. This will eventually expand the national services, and security threats will no longer be threats in America.
