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!

Republicans are blasting a provision in the federal defense budget that would require women to register for the military draft. ​

The ​Senate National Defense Authorization Act, approved by the Senate Armed Services Committee last week, contains an amendment that would compel women between the ages of 18 to 25 to sign up for the Selected Service, just as men that age are required to do.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, an Iraq War veteran known as a hawk on defense issues, and Josh Hawley of Missouri voted against the proposal.

The Dead Old White Guys didn’t want to have a standing army.  Hence all the emphasis on the State militias.

Without the standing army, there would be no Military Industrial Complex.

And, hence no empire.
