Military Draft (cont.)

By 1973, active conscription would come to an end, of sorts, as the United States Armed Forces moved to an all-volunteer military. Although today no one can be drafted into the U.S. military against their will, there still remains a draft that exists on a contingency basis and could be activated should the U.S. military require extra troops in an emergency situation.

This emergency draft remains in place to this day and would call on all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing within the United States, who are 18 through 25 are required to register with the Selective Service System.
