Abstract : This study addresses the issue of whether or not the Selective Service should introduce procedures to classify individuals registered for the draft, prior to mobilization. During any possible future emergency, the Selective Service mission is to deliver registrants to the Military Enlistment Processing Command (MEPCOM). The current delivery schedule requires arrival of the first registrant by M+13, with 100,000 registrants delivered by M+30. At MEPCOM, these individuals will be examined both physically and mentally. Those found acceptable for military service will be inducted and sent directly to military training centers. At issue, is whether or not it would be logical to perform necessary examinations prior to mobilizations so that on M Day, the pool of qualifiers would be known, and individuals would proceed directly to training. This study addresses the feasibility of a pre-classification system. It also examines the political feasibility of such an undertaking. Finally, it concludes with recommendations on the subject.
