Did you know it’s been over 20 years since the military draft was studied?  Think about how much national security has changed since 9/11, for example.

Yet, many in Congress insist on tinkering with this delicate matter without investigating what is best for our security and military readiness.

One of the things some are pushing for is forcing women into the draft despite the fact that now they’re serving in frontline combat. That means women will be forced into frontline combat, not just volunteer.

The Department of Defense believes a broad discussion is in order before such a drastic measure, and Concerned Women for America agrees. These are our daughters we are talking about!

We need to study this carefully.
