on Sep 12 in Articles by

111th CONGRESS, 2d Session H. R. 5741 July 15, 2010

To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.

Mr. RANGEL introduced the bill; which was referred to the Committee on Armed Services


(a) Obligation for Service- It is the obligation of every citizen of the United States, and every other person residing in the United States, who is between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a period of national service as prescribed in this title unless exempted under the provisions of this title.

(b) Forms of National Service- The national service obligation under this title shall be performed either–

(1) as a member of an active or reserve component of the uniformed services; or

(2) in a civilian capacity that, as determined by the President, promotes the national defense, including national or community service and service related to homeland security.

(c) Age Limits- A person may be inducted under this title only if the person has attained the age of 18 and has not attained the age of 42.


(1) RANDOM SELECTION FOR MILITARY SERVICE – When the induction of persons for military service is authorized by subsection (b), the President shall utilize a mechanism for the random selection of persons to be inducted to perform military service.

(2) CIVILIAN SERVICE – Persons described in section 102(a) who do not volunteer to perform military service or are not inducted for military service shall perform their national service obligation in a civilian capacity pursuant to section 102(b)(2).

(a) Voluntary Service – A person subject to induction under this title may volunteer to perform national service in lieu of being inducted or request permission to be inducted at a time other than the time at which the person is otherwise called for induction.

(3) Such other grounds as the President may establish.

If this passes and becomes law, it can and must be deemed null and void.

It violates our Constitutional right to liberty. They cannot and will not make us slaves.

Our State and our County has the authority to say no to every overreaching

and outrageous attempt by our federal government to eliminate our rights

and destroy the heritage and the future of our great country.
