House Hearing on Selective Service

 May 19, 2021 / Edward Hasbrouck / Antiwar.com - A House Armed Service Committee (HASC) hearing on May 19th heard from witnesses on only one side of the debate over whether to end draft registration or extend it to young women as well as young men. But despite the one-sided panel of witnesses, questions and comments from members of Congress highlighted the failure of the ongoing attempt to get men to register for a future military draft, and the lack of any feasible way to enforce a future military draft of men or women.

The Chair of the Armed Service Committee, Rep. Adam Smith (D-WA), opened the hearing by noting a written statement submitted by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR). Rep. DeFazio is one of the initial co-sponsors of the bipartisan Selective Service Repeal Act of 2021 (H.R. 2509 and S. 1139), which is pending in the Armed Services Committees in both the House and the Senate.

According to Rep. DeFazio, "President Carter reinstated draft registration in 1980 largely for political reasons. Military draft registration has existed ever since, requiring all men aged 18-26 to register with the Selective Service System (SSS). It should be repealed altogether…. The SSS is an unnecessary, unwanted, archaic, wasteful, and punitive bureaucracy that violates Americans’ civil liberties… It’s beyond time for Congress to repeal the SSS once and for all."

‘Selective Service Repeal Act’ Introduced in Congress

16/04.2021 / Edward Hasbrouck / Antiwar.com - The Selective Service Repeal Act of 2021 (H.R. 2509 and S. 1139) was introduced in Congress on April 14th 2021 with bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate.

Initial co-sponsors of the bill to end draft registration and abolish the Selective Service System are Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Rep. Rodney Davis (R-IL), Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY).

"No young person, regardless of gender, should be subject to a military draft or be forced to register for a draft in the United States. The military draft registration system is an unnecessary, wasteful bureaucracy which unconstitutionally violates Americans’ civil liberties. We should be abolishing military draft registration altogether, not expanding it," said Rep. DeFazio.

"If a war is worth fighting, Congress will vote to declare it and people will volunteer," said Sen. Paul.

Other cosponsors of the bill include Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC). Residents of the District of Colombia, Puerto Rico, and other U.S. territories are subject to the military draft, but have no voting representation in Congress, only nonvoting "Delegates" to the House of Representatives.

Salir del programa de ingreso postergado (DEP)

DEP: Simplemente no vayas

El Programa de Ingreso Postergado también se denomina Programa de Futuros Soldados en el Ejército. Las personas que ingresan al servicio activo deben alistarse primero en el DEP.

 

¿Cambiaste de opinión y quieres salir?

Si te inscribiste en el DEP (o en el "Programa de entrenamiento de futuros soldados" del Ejército) y luego cambiaste de opinión, ten cuidado con los reclutadores que dicen que no puedes salir de allí o que debes presentarte en el campo de entrenamiento para ser liberado. Tampoco es cierto. Para
salir del DEP, hay pasos simples que debes seguir antes de su fecha para presentarse a la
capacitación básica. No espere que su reclutador lo ayude, y NO debe ir a una base militar si le
dicen que se presente allí para ser liberado.
