The "draft" is the actual process of calling men between ages 18 - 26 to be inducted to serve in the U.S. military. The draft is typically used only in the event of war or extreme national emergency as determined by the Congress and the president.

 

An initiation of a draft would require action by both Congress and the President. Congress would have to pass legislation initiating a draft, and the legislation would have to be passed into law by signature of the President.

The selective service would be activated, and they would initiate a draft lottery. The lottery would establish the priority of call based on the birth dates of registrants.


Should the President and the Congress decide a draft was needed, a classification program would begin. Registrants would be examined to determine suitability for military service, and they would also have ample time to claim exemptions, deferments, or postponements. To be inducted, men would have to meet the physical, mental, and administrative standards established by the military services. Local Boards would meet in every community to determine exemptions and deferments for clergymen, ministerial students, and men who file claims for reclassification as conscientious objectors.

it is pertaining to the secret security clearance Renewal and I noticed some errors, inconsistencies. That I would never have annotated. I received a general discharge in 2004. The National Guard was taking General discHargett applicants during 2006. I believe my recruiter ommited information on my 2006 sf86. I am now doing my 10 year renewal and have noticed my discharge is an honorable from the Navy which is not the case, it was a General under Honorable conditions. I was granted a secret clearance and maintaineducation thru my time in the Guard from 2006 to 2011. I was then transferred to the Army under the Sanctuary program to receive my active duty retirement. I was never interviewed for the sf86 Inot 2006. I found copies of the old sf 86 and realized the incorrect entry. Now while filling out my new sf86 I am concerned that this is fraudulent. I contacted the recuiter and asked him about it here stated that it is not because my discharge was under Honorable condition.
