Women should be included in the draft, says commission

A commission mandated by the FY 2017 NDAA to study the U.S. draft recommends in its hot-off-the-press 255-page report that women and men be equally required to register for the draft. Fact: the same NDAA included a provision mandating exactly that in the Senate version (pushed through by the much-missed Senator John McCain), but opening the draft to women died in conference. Instead, an 11-member commission to "study" the issue was born, and who knows how many hundreds of thousands of dollars later, we now have their unsurprising conclusion to JUST DO IT.  Congress, ball is back in your court.  How long have women been in combat now???????????
