Yes, but only because the country is currently in a complicated geopolitical situation

No, service should be a choice. The people we'd be mandating to serve would do more harm than good.

No, but enforce anyone aged 18+ and of either sex to conscript in the event of a major war

@AaronAmede from Maine answered…1yr

Yes, 4 years of service in the reserves in exchange for 4 years of college tuition free.

@8XNT9ZQ from Florida answered…1yr

The military does not want criminals, they like people who have education and skills. Few children at age 18 know what direction they want to pursue, public service for a year - be it military or other service would be very beneficial to aiding maturity for youth. Colleges today generally prolong adolescence.

@8T2WB2B from New York answered…2yrs

Yes, with the option of national service rather than military service. (E.g. community involvement programs)

@8SSR7YY from Tennessee answered…2yrs

everyone that is able should have to have some kind of tie with the military because it is a good way of motivation and experience

@7VSJ8PL from Texas answered…2yrs

@Maxx48503800 from California answered…2yrs

Yes, but with a possible deferment to the Army Corp of Engineers. There they can learn a trade and help rebuild American's crumbling infrastructure.

@3H2PX7K answered…2yrs

No, but everyone should be required to do two years of some sort of service work (military, government, nonprofit, etc.)

 @8RQ55J4 from Nebraska answered…2yrs

No, service should be a choice instead of an obligation and abolish selective services

@8R5FPDD from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

@8QVWDD7 from Michigan answered…2yrs

No, service should be a choice instead of an obligation

No, Requiring Someone to serve in the military is unconstitutional

@7W3SBDC from Florida answered…2yrs

No, this would be a giant waste of money and resources. There is no need, there are more men and women enlisted than ever to where they're having to cut bak on enlistment benefits. Also having people who don't want to be there will cause trouble and it will get to the point where they'll have these mandated people piecing a puzzle together for a days work (the supply will exceed the demand).

 @buday4vancouver from Washington answered…2yrs

1 year health screening and training, to see if they like it. No combat or tours.

@4ZTD62K answered…2yrs

No, however it should be an alternative to prison like it used to be.

@6HDD83R from California answered…2yrs

the age of enlistment should be at 21 years, joining the military should be on a voluntary and unpaid basis rather than mandatory (e.g. conscription)

@kgtiberius from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

No, but should incentivize National Service (including military) bonus for those who serve (such as tuition, education, financial reward of mortgage/rent and/or 401K pension programs).

@LangworthyUS9th from Michigan answered…2yrs

No. I do belive that giving some young adults the option of going into the military instead of going to prison for some offenses would be beneficial in many ways. One it would help rehabilitate them and give them a sense of pride and honor. It will also strengthen our national defense.

@8JQ6Q2H from New Jersey answered…2yrs

No, unless we are in war, then enlist as many 18 year olds as possible. But when were not in war, not everyone is fit to be in the military service, they will break.

@8JN8BGC from Texas answered…2yrs

No, but provide more benefits for service to encourage young people to enlist.

@moglenmo from Florida answered…2yrs

Yes, it should be two years of service but the citizen should have a choice between military or civil service through a system like Americorps.

@85QWNPG from Colorado answered…2yrs

Yes, but only those with a criminal background and only if we have an abolition of both the 13th amendment, as well all incentives of both recruiters and prisons to meet quotas, would also add the abolition of private prison systems all together.

@8HQ9Y3F from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes, and it should be at least three years they should also have access to insurance and education after serving.

@8GMPK8G from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes but I think we should stay there till we are 21. We will have the discipline then and if we want out at 21 we will have a better view on things and can come out and have a better idea of what we want our future to look like.
