If you are a US citisen, do you still have to do a stint in the armed forces?
Yes. Afterwards they give you a mule.
and an acre of land
Only if you aren't a pussy.
Unlike some European countries, the US doesn't need to have mandatory service unless the military cannot meet requirements during war. In which case, our Congress would institute the draft, which is a selection process for nonvolunteer troops.
The U.S. hasn't had the draft since Vietnam. All the Ultra liberal hippies would go bonkers.
Yeah, with the US being the way that it is nowdays... It would take quite a bit for them to bring back the draft. (i.e. another world war) even then I'd be surprised...
Moveable type! We must keep this from the serfs lest they gain literacy and challenge the nobility!
Thank you for the serious replies. I live in Australia and was just told that all guys are still drafted. I thought that sounded a bit off so I thought I would ask here.
