You should probably go ahead and sign the notice and send it in, but before you do, you should look up some information as to HOW to sign and send it
in, if you are planning on claiming the 'conscientious objector' status. You should do some specific things that will back up your claim as well.
Get it on record, and the sooner you start, the better. See the following for advice. How do I Prove

How To Stay Out of the Military
Dodge the Draft? Refuse to Volunteer
The Right to Refuse to 'Volunteer' When Called For the Coming Draft
For everyone stating that a draft will never happen again, there are people in our government trying very hard to make it happen, right now! I
wouldn't be surprised to see this within the next year or so.......and I'm surprised so many don't think it's a possibility.
Our government, and Israel has been trying to get a war with Iran started for the last few years, remember? Where are the soldiers for THAT going to
come from, if there isn't another draft?
Our government managed to get us into a couple of wars 10 years ago, and because of the circumstances, there was no need for a draft at that time.
Now, after 10 years of war on two fronts, (and now Libya) rushed into under questionable circumstances, I don't think the volunteer level would be so
good this time around.
But that's ok.....they have a plan for that.
Rangel Introduces Universal National
Congressman Charles Rangel on Thursday introduced the Universal National Service Act, commonly referred to as the draft bill, ahead of the 8th
anniversary of the invasion of Iraq on Saturday, March 19, 2011. The Congressman, a Korean War Veteran, has introduced similar legislation in the past
that addresses not only the need for a more equitable military draft, but also establishes a universal requirement for National Service.
Right now Charlie Rangel is calling it a Universal National Service Act, but this is the third or fourth time he has proposed this. In 2003 and again
in 2006, I believe he also proposed similar bills. I think those other bills actually called it a draft, though. And he is not the only one in our
government in recent years to propose this idea, either.
I told all the young men that I know NOT to enlist, in the run up to the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. I wasn't sure about Afghanistan, but I was pretty
sure that there were no WMD in Iraq, and that was even before I knew everything that I now know about it. I did not support either war, because we
don't have the right to attack other countries preemptively. Defending our own soil against foreign attack is a little different.
Not wanting to kill people in wars of aggression doesn't make a person any less of a man, or a coward....it makes you SMART!
Mossme, don't let anyone make you feel bad or unpatriotic for not wanting to fight in wars that do nothing but DESTROY EVERYTHING for the benefit of
