The civilian-military gap is more of a drift than a divide
from Task & Purpose
With less than 3 million men and women currently wearing the uniform (1 percent of the population) in an all-volunteer force, coupled with a continued decline in military experience in the halls of Congress, America risks the potential circumstances articulated by RAND authors. Some have argued that reinstituting the draft would reconnect America to its military, but doing so only recruits a different 1 percent.
