“Should We Bring Back the Draft?” A Community Conversation
Forty-seven years ago this month, the last Draftee entered Basic Training. We’ve been fighting our wars with an All-Volunteer Force ever since. Is it working? Is it fair? Is it the best we can do?
Please join us on Monday, June 8 at 7:00pm to share your thoughts about bringing back the Draft. Leading the conversation will be Major General Dennis Laich (RET), whose book, Skin in the Game: Poor Kids and Patriots, argues that the All-Volunteer Force is broken and needs to be overhauled.  We’ll discuss what a new Draft might look like and the impact it would have on our nation and its families, especially its young people. We’ll ask you for your thoughts, comments, and questions. It should be a fascinating evening!
