A Volunteer Military or a Draft?

Very well done. Presents both sides of the argument concisely and fairly, and in a way which interests students, e.g. input from various people including youths, soldiers, politicians; short applicable historical lessons. Long enough to generate thought and debate, but short enough to keep their attention which is increasingly challenging in the age of instant gratification and constant entertainment. Thanks so much!

This was a very appropriate film for my classes in that many students are thinking of joining the military. It also plays an important part in learning about the Vietnam War and looking at the difference between a draft and a volunteer military. I think it helps young students understand the cost of citizenship - and the cost of war.

This was a great video for all students who wish to know more about the draft and the motivations for joining the military.

I served 21 years in the US Army, and deployed three times. I am retired now, and enjoy teaching. I thought this video was extremely well done, and shows a balanced point of view from both sides of the issue. It will spark excellent discussion in class.
