Follow Up Alert Re National Service


21 Kislev, 5780

[Follow-Up] Alert: 

Public comments are urgently needed by Dec. 31, addressing, among other things, "Should all Americans be required to serve?"

The "National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service" is taking public comments addressing questions about whether America should encourage or even require various types of public service, including Military, National, and Public Service.

The moral hazards are formidable, see a previous post:

This is from their email of  about a month ago:

"One month left to share your thoughts on the following:

Does service have inherent value?

If so, what is it?

How does the U.S. increase the desire for Americans, particularly young Americans, to serve?

What are the barriers to participation in military, national or public service?

How can the U.S. increase participation in military, national, and public service by individuals with critical skills to address national security and other public service needs of the nation?

Is the military draft or draft contingency still a necessary component of U.S. national security?

Are modifications to the selective service system needed?

Is a mandatory service requirement for all Americans necessary, valuable, and feasible?

Submit a public comment by the December 31, 2019 deadline via:

mail your comment or any material you see fit to 2530 Crystal Drive, Suite 1000, Box #63, Arlington, Virginia 22202, 

or email your response to:

The national conversation on these important issues begins with you. ..."

It's important our voices be heard. We're all for serving the country, but only in a manner consistent with serving G-d.
