I just turned 18, am I going to get drafted?
Dear Birthday Person,
Contrary to what you’ve seen on the internet, a draft does not currently exist in the United States at this time. In order for the draft to be reconstituted, it would have to be passed by Congress. Thankfully, our military is comprised of all volunteers, I shudder to think of what might happen if we had to drag 18-25 year-olds kicking and screaming from their parent’s basements crying for a safe space. My advice to you is quit playing Fortnite, stay off Twitter & FakeBook, and get your news from www.edmonsonvoice.com.
