Drafting Women into the Military

I would not vote for a general conscription (draft) of American Women.

Women currently serving as volunteers in our Armed Forces are doing a terrific job in supporting their specific missions. Respect is not assumed. Respect is earned. These women have earned a warrior’s respect. A female warrior enters into a complex environment militarily, culturally, and physically when they take their oath of service.

Many believe the Equal Rights Amendment (1923 – 1982) finally stalled just short of the 38 State Ratifications needed to be enacted because of the reality of conscription of women into the military. Politically I do not believe there is a will among the majority to draft America’s Women.

On a personal level I feel women should be able to volunteer for military service and allowed to achieve what ever goals their capabilities can achieve in the military based on an equal standard.
