I would like to know so I can start getting back in shape. Of course I haven't had my hernia surgery yet, heh. Who thinks it will happen?

Has this one already been covered?

I don't think you'll need the Draft, as when your homeland is invaded or attacked, one is compelled to be in for the fight. Self predervation, and the future of your homeland for your children, and their children is at stake. I am sure your recruiting centres will be chock-a-block ,if need be. Things have changed now, and will never be the same, as they were on 10 Sep. If you can't fight, give blood. That can save a life!

To think that America would have to start a draft after this attack is pretty sad, alot of the people living here have lived under the freedom that was provided by the blood of our grandfathers generation, and it's time for young men living under that umbrella of freedom to step up and fight for an defend there country, to many have become complacent, for the cost of freedom the tree of liberty must bleed a little, and the people must remain ever so vigilant.

I tried, sigh, they won't take me - I'm 38, we'd have to get the draft going in order for me to be able to go.

Thats why I asked.

They will only take us (38-45) if we reinstate the draft.

That age thing is really making me upset. First time in my life, they say "you're too old"

Yeah, but if, and it looks like it is, this the kickoff of WW3, we may all get an invitation to the party. They won't have to ask me twice.

I just did 32 pushups and collapsed. But I will be in better shape next week.

There will be no draft unless there is an all out war. My gut tells me that's not going to happen. It's one thing to wage a guerilla war in a place like vietnam against us, but another to do it in the deserts. A little technology goes a long way. God Bless Texas

I was regular Army in the early 80's and after a 16 year break in service I enlisted in the National Guard at age 35, (waiver required) and I am now 37y/o, If you can't enlist, don't let it get you down, we need patriots here to defend our homefront while the rest of us are away, defend uor families.

I was too young for Vietnam, in my last year of college when we were in the gulf, and NOW I'm to old for this. Just great.

CQB30 said, "If you can't enlist, don't let it get you down, we need patriots here to defend our homefront while the rest of us are away, defend uor families." I'll step up to that plate. I am medically disqualified from military service, therefore, I will do my part (if it came to that) here in guard of this country, and the families here. [sniper]
