David M. Miyasato enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve in 1987, served three years of active duty during the first Gulf War and received an honorable discharge in 1991. He remained on inactive status for five more years, until 1996. Since then, the Kaua'i resident has married, started an auto window tinting business and this year, he and his wife had their first child.

But in September, Miyasato received a letter from the Army recalling him to active duty and directing him to report to a military facility in South Carolina on Tuesday.

"I was shocked," Miyasato said yesterday. "I never expected to see something like that after being out of the service for 13 years."

Miyasato is now suing the Secretary of the Army, asking a court to prevent the Army from ordering him to active duty. He is also asking for a court judgment declaring that he fulfilled all his obligations to the military.

Miyasato's lawyer, Eric Seitz, said Miyasato earlier asked for an exemption, but never got a response.

Honolulu Advertiser

Those who deny the possibility of a draft should take a look at this man. The pentagon is fully aware he is no long active but he is still expected to make his way to that inevitable deployment in Iraq.

What has he been doing for the past 8 years? It says he was incative until 1996..then what? Is he in the National Guard...or inactive Army Reserves?

It has been widely reported that inactive troops would be called up.

This is no big deal, other than just another example of someone who does not want to live to their responsibilities.

It in no way can possibly be construed as a draft precursor.

I guess the wife and kid and his small business don't count in your world.

Ummm... he did. Served his time and remained on status for five years after discharge. Eight years later the Government wants more.

Do you know what "willful ignorance" means?

Going to have to side with Mr. Gools here.

As the news has been reported to us at the moment, it seems this man has no obligations to the service, and that shows a huge deficit that the military is trying to fill with persons like this man.


If the news stays the same, then this is indeed a good sign of something amiss.

This Dave guy will win his case. His military contracts state that he is only obligated to 8 years total service. His original contracted active component duty, plus the remainder of 8 years made up in inactive reserve time.

I don't think there's a judge in America that wouldn't be able to see how obvious this is in a military contract. He has served his time, just like I have. If I were called up, I would consider it nothing more than an accident on the part of DA.

There are too many unknowns here. What was his MOS? Is he in any guard unit? Is he just a "coward"?

If the administration even hints at reinstating the draft...we'll have a little war on our own soil sooner than expected.

Yeah, he's a coward who served in the 1st Gulf War. Did you even read the friggin post?


The military apparently needs more people. At the very least they need one guy to serve in some position, and have chosen him. He feels his obligation has been met. Would you, Horacid, like to enlist in his place without being asked to, as a gesture of your commitment to Bush and of your support of the Iraq war?

Or are you a coward?

Miyasato served as a specialist E-4, driving a heavy equipment mobility tactical truck capable of hauling heavy loads over rough terrain. He delivered fuel, ammunition and other materials and served in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, he said.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


He is well beyond his inactive reserve obligation. He was from an undermanned MOS. Doesn't matter. He's done. He is not a coward.

Another sign of the impending draft posted last night:

Are they getting ready for the Draft...?



The Selective Service filed a notice in the federal register three days before the election to check the computer records of the Department of Education for compliance with a law that requires all students receiving federal financial aid to register for the draft...

Even John Kerry said he would put 40,000 more troops in the field. Where was he going to get them?

40k isn't that many. It isn't like our entire Army, active, reserve, and guard is in Iraq and Afghanistan.

There are currently what, 140k troops in Iraq? Our total active military population is currently 1.3 million. I think we should put 250k more troops over there.

He said he would have gladly returned to active duty when he was on inactive status, but that ended in 1996 and his life has changed, particularly with their 7-month-old daughter and his business, which can't survive without him.

Its time the americans asked some hard questions whats worse a draft or dragging people who have served honourable back into a uniform.
The draft is the lesser evil.
The pros could serve overseas in places like Iraq and in other combat threaters while the conscripts would take care of national sercuity and disaster relief.

Gee any US vietnam vets better put there lives on hold because chances are they will be back in uniform.
