    Anyone whose my age (in between 18-25 and a college graduate and/or not in college) should probably be expecting a draft reinstatement within the next few months. I know I am..

    Oh come on now, settle your rockets. Thats jumping to conclusions waaaaayy to quick man. Unless you think we will go to war with Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran on our own with no support, I think thats going a little far. There have been downsizes in the military yes, but, we still have plenty enough folks to grease a group of terrorists without bringing in the draft. Remember, the reservists would be called first if needed and we have the support of the entire planet (almost). I dont see the draft coming in to play even if we do go to war with the above mentioned as long as the support of other nations is involved...I think it obviously is. I wouldnt worry about it, but there is nothing wrong with recognizing the possibility exists (as it always has) and is more probable than it was last week. See how it plays out. I dont think you or anybody your age has to worry about that right now.

    All I was doing was stating what I've been hearing on the streets all day long being that YES I DO LIVE HERE.

    As far as MikeL goes, he can still go and ........

    And last night there was a run on gas because people let their panic get ahead of their thinking.

    The world isn't ending, draft notices are not in the mail, and feeding panic helps nothing.

    Everyone's gonna hear a lot of bullshit over the next days and weeks. It's our responsibility to think things through before we act on what we hear.

    I think you and Mike need a big ole' french kiss. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    As for talk on the street? Its cool man, I'm not gonna knock ya for being prepared, but I sure dont want to see a bunch of hype get started off of rumors in the street. Its just that. Rumors on the street. Think beyond the hype man, and suggest to others that they do the same. Be prepared, but at the same time, be smarter than the average bear and if you do get drafted, you will live longer. Not telling you how to think by any means, just warning against spreading rumors and how they can affect the psyche of a generation.

    Any talk about a draft is unfounded, careless, and irresponsible. I'm in the army national guard, so i believe i'm qualified to speak on the subject.

    btw, guys, my unit is on alert.

    I've heard some strange things from folks on active duty today is the only reason I ask. What are you hearing about bio threats? You guys doing any special brush ups on anything specific?

    I can see this is just gonna be a flame war, so I'm gonna close this. For the record, there will not be a draft, that's just ridiculous, we have more than enough troops right now.

    I work with a guy who run's the school district's community ed reservations department. He basically finds space to hold all the different meetings and such. We regularly use the local National Guard Armoury, but it was closed to us yesterday. Not sure about today. So there's been some activity at the one here. Not too surprising.

    I haven't seen Gully online since yesterday morning, so I imagine he may be otherwise occupied.
