Mandatory Military Service

By Amy Cavalier

WRVO – Upstate New York Congressman John Mchugh says making military service mandatory is not a new idea and isn't apt to happen anytime soon.

Mchugh says doesn't see a need for changing the current method of military recruitment.

As it stands now, he says, all males having reached the age of 18 must sign up for the draft.

Mchugh says Congress has not recieved any details of the proposal from Congressman Rangel yet.
