I’d be interested what veterans think.  Of course, they can’t poll the KIAs and MIAs.  

Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die. — Herbert Hoover

I can’t imagine that ANY vet would want a draftee in the foxhole with them.

I still don’t understand women in the military.  In Israel, where ere is no front line or safe rear area, I understand that everyone fights. (Reminds me of Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, there is a line that goes something like “everyone drops (parachutes) in and everybody fights”.  

That being said, the only reason for the draft’s continued existence is it provides a Gooferment paycheck to an entrenched bureaucracy. Charles Rangel (imho a stopped clock) every session introduced legislation to end the draft. I always agreed with him on that. (Didn’t the Fourteenth Amendment eliminate slavery?)

Argh!
