Abstract : The study presents the major problems and concerns facing the nation relative to an All-Volunteer Army. Present anti-draft sentiment has caused politicians and their constituents to overlook or rationalize the serious dangers inherent in a professional military force. The essay emphasizes that to maintain the security of the nation and to prevent the emergence of a military subculture, it is more advisable to continue the Selective Service System. In order to reduce sentiment directed against the draft, the present system must be reformed in order to eliminate the inequities and injustices that it thrusts upon the youth of our nation.
