When the U.S. House of Representatives passed its version of the National Defense Authorization Act last week, which authorized $895.2 billion in military spending, one of the measures included would automatically register men aged 18 to 26 for Selective Service. Not to be outdone, in the Senate, language from Democrats has been added to the NDAA, as it’s called, that would also require women to register for the draft.

The uproar from Republicans and conservatives was swift. Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Missouri, described the requirement for women to sign up for the draft “insane.”

However, most Americans fail to recognize the fact that the military as an all-volunteer force since 1973 is “not a novel thing in American history,” Spears pointed out. “Peacetime drafts are the anomaly in American history,” he said, emphasizing that drafts typically occur when the nation is at war.
