Today we worked on:

1. Viewing the PBS documentary The Draft.  We took notes in our notebooks.

If you were absent, please do some research and be prepared to discuss: 

  • What function does the Selective Service have today?
  • Is the selective service system fair? Why or why not?
  • How does the socio-economic makeup of the American military forces that fought in Vietnam compare with the makeup of those who have fought in Iraq and Afghanistan
