1. What is fightening is since the ending of the draft the military has focused on recruiting and

promoting conservative gung-ho types. The Airforce Acadamy with similar problems in the past was also favoring Christian, gung-ho types. https://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/23/politics/air-force-academy-staff-found-promoting-religion.html

We should return to a draft lottery even as the need for a standing army is diminishing as not really useful with modern weapons.

The military needs to return to when it reflected the men and women of the nation.

It is sad that the Supreme Court turned down a recent challenge to the all male draft.
