Should Idaho Women Have To Register For The Draft?
During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, top generals suggested that now that women are allowed on the front lines in combat, they should also be required to register for the draft.
Currently young men ages 18-26 are required to sign up for selective service and could be drafted into the military if the need arises.
Marine Corps commandant, General Robert Neller explained that he personally believed that every American who's physically qualified should have to register for the draft. He was backed up by the Army chief of staff.
The recommendation comes shortly after a new rule allowed women to seek 220,000 jobs that were previously available only to their male counterparts. Those jobs included combat positions in special ops and infantry.
Opinion of this recommendation was wide spread after news of it went public.
