It was only a matter of time boys...

It looks like the President is calling up reenactors for Iraq. At least according to the Onion. :-)

My GGG Grandfather served in the Civil War, my Father served in the US Merchant Marines, my brother served in the 82nd Airborne as a Chaplain, my eldest daughter served in the Army as an EMT with the rank of private. I wouldn't want my youngest daughter to be called up by a draft. She doesn't have what it takes to be a soldier. However, I do believe the draft is the most fair means of enlistment because it includes everyone from the rich kids to the politician's sons and daughters. The next draft will not discriminate between the sexes...
