Question: selective service will draft medical workers

beefmerciful - Sat Apr 30, 2005 6:32 am

"An article in The New York Times titled “U. S. Has Contingency Plans for a Draft of Medical Workers” appears, revealing that Widemeyer Communications was hired during the summer to help the SSS prepare an enormous draft of doctors, nurses, and 61 medical specialties. What is not mentioned is that the Medical Draft will be expanded to include medical equipment repairpersons and even medical form processors. SSS spokesman Flavahan says that 36, 000 doctors and nurses, more than 1% of the total 3. 4 million men and women in the U. S. under the age of 44, are planned to be inducted in the first batch once the Skills Draft is activated, showing the current great need or possibly a future need from new invasions and conquests."

Hello Beefmerciful,

Thank you for your interest and desire to share your findings. This could be a possibility or maybe not, I encourage anyone interested in the details to do research themselves to verify the details. There are controversies on both sides and you will find pros and cons leaning to right and the left.
