Marine Corps Generals want Women to Register for the Draft

Males born in the US after Dec. 31, 1959, who are 18 but not yet 26 years old are required to register for the draft. Men in that age group who are immigrants living in the US also must sign up, with the exception of those on a visa.

Defense Secretary Carter's decision to open all military positions, including combat roles, to women was being discussed at hearing of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. Army and Marine Corps leaders testified at the hearing and expressed that they think women should register for the draft.

I disagree, and I don't think women should be in combat roles. The draft ended in 1973, so joining the military is completely voluntary. But what if it comes back?
