I've been for this for a long time. I think any form of public service, i.e. Forest Service, Military, Police, Fireman, even secretary in city government, should count. For the people not physically qualified for physically intensive work, there are plenty of other oppurtunities to serve. This program would help the country by providing enough people to do jobs that are harder to get filled and would benefit the people who are filling those positions by offering them a guranteed income, training, and skills needed to be successful afterwards. After two to three years the people would be able to choose to pursue a different career, higher education, or stick with what they are doing.
Latest Major Action: 1/10/2007 Referred to House committee. Status: Referred to the Committee on Armed Services, and in addition to the Committee on Ways and Means, for a period to be subsequently determined by the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned.

I dare 'em to make it mandatory. If I get forced away from my family, my job, and everything that I care about, you can rest assured I'm gonna make a nightmare come true for anyone close to me the first time they put a firearm in my hand. And that's something any of you that could possibly be sucked into something like this could do. When they teach you to use that firearm, turn it on them and use it. If enough people were to do that, they would quit the whole mandatory bullcrap.
