H.R. 393 - Mandatory National Service for all persons within the US aged 18-42Submitted by john2k on Fri, 11/14/2008 - 11:23
With all the new talk about Obama's mandatory national service for high school students, college students as well as the incentive based service of retired people and those over 55 - maybe we ought to take another look at H.R. 393
I always thought H.R. 393 was something that would remain in the back wings of Congress and only be made into law IF it became necessary (for example, if WWIII started). Now I'm not so sure.
With Obama and Emmanuel calling for mandatory national service, I would not be surprised if they attempt to push this bill through congress.
H.R. 393 would require mandatory national service from ALL persons aged 18 to 42.
