The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service will release an interim report this Wednesday at an event at the Newseum in Washington, DC, beginning at 9:00 A.M. The Commission was created by Congress “to consider and develop recommendations concerning the need for a military draft, and means by which to foster a greater attitude and ethos of service among American youth.”
Paul Jacob will attend to demand the government oppose their push for mandatory national service and expanding draft registration. Last April, Jacob testified before the commission and penned this commentary, entitled “Leave Those Kids Alone.”
Paul has long opposed both military and non-military conscription. Back in the 1980s, he served nearly six months in prison for refusing to register for the draft.
