Should We Bring Back the Draft?

Presented by Heinz History Center at Heinz History Center, Pittsburgh PA

Jul 12 2018
Should We Bring Back the Draft?

Join the Heinz History Center and The Veterans Breakfast Club for this special panel discussion convening experts and local veterans to look at all sides of the issue, as well as the history and possible futures of the Draft.

At a time of a growing civilian-military divide, when half of one percent of the population serves on active-duty in the armed forces, an increasing number of voices are calling for re-instating the Draft. Those in favor argue that the Draft would distribute the burdens of military service more equitably across the nation, while those against contend it would weaken our military and divide the country further.
