TCS: Backdoor Draft?
The bottom line is that the country is at war and reservists signed up to serve when that’s the case. We owe it to them, though, to place as much of the burden as possible on the active duty force, who after all have volunteered to make the military their full-time job. Reservists joined with the expectation that they be called to serve during emergencies and then released from active duty when the shooting is over. It’s perfectly reasonable to ask them to fight our country’s wars. It’s not reasonable to expect them to be full-time soldiers.
