House Overwhelmingly Rejects Military Draft
Washington, DC - Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11) today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelming rejection of legislation to reinstate a military draft:
"Tonight's vote reaffirms my strong opposition to reinstating the military draft. The current all-volunteer system remains vastly preferable to a conscripted military.
