stronger the military could be with increased participation. By means of the draft, the military could have many men and women ready to answer the call of duty and serve as an American militant which would expand the firmness and durability of the military overall. Detractors of compulsory service argue that the substantial financial burden of requiring a draft is overwhelming, and many rights and liberties are stripped from younger enforcement. Although to a given extent the cost may be on the higher side and it would be easier to manipulate the younger soldiers, there are many benefits of serving that outweigh the costs of deployment as well as financial support for young people. Soldiers could receive student loan forgiveness, and there is an increased access to service or job opportunities after serving. As for the costs, Robert Litan and Shirley Sagawa acknowledge how “such a program would require a significant federal contribution, [but] both argue the benefits outweigh the cost”. (Source #4) This statement illustrates the significance of contributing to the military and how it is worth the federal expense, as well as how younger military members will not get cheated out of any benefits provided by the US government.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
