Perhaps you have seen the catchy TV ads for the various branches of the United States military. You know, the ones that tell you to be all you can be...in the Army!. In the last decade, these advertisements have become necessary because compulsory military service (otherwise known as the draft ) no longer exists in the United States. Compulsory service, long required during time of war, was reinstituted in the United States in 1940, as the United States was on the brink of World War II. The draft remained in effect through the turbulent 1960s but was suspended by President Nixon in 1973. In the late 1970s, Congress passed legislation officially halting the draft.
