    Enlisted rather than be drafted so I could have a choice about branch. Did give up an athletic scholarship but by the time I got out my goals had changed so became an engineer rather than a coach.

    I don't believe a year of training minimum along with some productive endeavor would do harm to anyone. Israel has a good model, but I believe we had a good model with the CCC camps which could be done after basic.

    difference between mandatory military service and the draft? Sounds like one is just more politically correct than the other.
