Sure, there is no draft, but there is this pesky thing called a "stop loss" that prevents soldiers from leaving the service when their time is up. There is also involunitary extensions, and recall of inactive reserves. These are all the things that Kerry is talking about when accuses Bush of "back door drafts".gumercules said:uhhhh which members of the military are pressed into service?
the officers who compete for spots at academies or spots in ROTC detachments?
the enlisted members who went to the enlistment office and signed up?
the reserve and guard who willingly trained for one weekend a month and collected more money than they were earning just in case they were needed?
the guys who got drafted? oh wait, there is no draft currently
