A call for universal civil service

Posted on May 28, 2007


A former Secretary of Defense and Representative, Melvvin R. Laird, is calling for universal civil service for all youths instead of a universal draft. He points out that the military doesn’t need that many soldiers, airmen, sailors, and marines, but that the rest of the government could really, REALLY use the influx of manpower.

I personally think that military service should be one of the options, but otherwise agree with Mr. Laird.
