Having to register for the draft

I think it’s time to bring back the military service draft.

When I turned 18 I needed to register for the draft and I think the worst thing the government ever did was to stop the draft. That was one thing an 18 year old had to do. I still have my draft card and I am 62 years old. I have a friend that had trouble with her daughter.

She finally did something that would end her up in jail. Her mother gave her two choices to either go to jail or join the Army.

She went in the Army. She came home on leave and her mother could not believe it was her child. She showed respect and was so polite that her mother almost fainted. She hugged her mother and thanked her for what she did.
