Rep. Martha McSally, a Republican from Arizona, said she thinks this is an important discussion, “but I do want to correct my colleague from California, as you painted the picture of the only reason for the draft to go into front-line combat — that is not true,” she said. “We all know many people that were drafted in World War II, Korea, Vietnam who served in other positions and not the infantry.”
Plenty of jobs in the military may need filling if a draft is put into action, McSally said.
“There could be medical positions; we could need cyber warriors,” she said. “There is all sorts of positions that we would need the country ready to mobilize for, so I do think we need to make sure that people understand as we are discussing this, the intent of the draft is not to fill 100 percent of the positions with front-line infantry.”
I thought teh won and his Nobel made it so that we could all forget about the “draft” ever becoming a reality again? Okay, that was written with a chortle.
