Kelli sent me this interesting artice in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette that covers what positions both John McCain and Barak Obama take on the issue of women in the military and the subject of reinstating the draft.
Mr. Obama supports a requirement for both men and women to register with the Selective Service, while Mr. McCain doesn’t think women should have to register.
While I see valid points on both sides, I have to agree with Nancy Duff Campbell, co-president of the National Women’s Law Center, who believes that women should have a chance to compete for any position in the armed forces.
I’d love to see some discussion on this topic, especially from women who may have served or are currently serving in the armed forces. Do you think women should be drafted?
