First send all politicians who want to vote on this topic to minimum one year of military service that only includes active duty beyond our borders. Once a full 338 mps have done that and are currently elected than they could decide what's best on this issue.

Three years service to give the Molly coddled youth of today some back bone, discipline, patriotism, moral compass and respect. One year is not enough for today's generation.

time to make men 0ut of our privileged, entitled youth. maybe, just maybe, they would think twice of doing crime. If this were an alternative instead of jail, maybe they could grow to be productive citizens in society. please consider productive discipline for those who are lost in society. jail is an invitation to free housing, meals, health care, education and God knows what other privileges. our veterans get what? shameful how the treatment of those who protect our country are forgotten. got this in reverse folks. shouldn't have to have this pointed out if you're doing your job right.
