If a draft is implemented in the USA, I am sad to say that I would be willing to go to war. I am only 16 though and cannot legally fight in combat. But, I would lie about my age like Jonnie Tremaine. Would anyone else do this? Does anyone else share my views?

My grandfather did during WWII, but he didn't have a birth certificate or a social security number, so nobody could track his age.
I wouldn't but I'm 20, I am considering enlisting, and if I get laid off here at DL, well You'll see me at the recruiter's office.

You guys are probably going to come back at me with a lot of something but I have to speak my mind anyway. You are all noble to want to go and defend our country and our way of life, but consider for just a moment what your voluntering would do to the rest of your family. If you want to be treated and respected as adults, then you must be able to consider each and every ramification of your actions. I know I must sound like your mom, but then I can't help that, I am a mom. My son too has voiced his desire to "go over there and kick some a**". Hopefully he will change his mind, I can't stop him anymore, he is a legal adult and makes his own decisions. But if he did go, I as his mother would have a very hard time with that situation. So on behalf of your mothers, please consider all of the consequences before you make any rash decisions. Thanks and God bless all of you.
