Court ruling on all-male draft reignites debate over women in the military
A federal court ruling that an all-male draft is unconstitutional has veterans on Long Island reassessing the role of women in the military. In his decision, U.S. District Court Judge Gray H. Miller cited the Pentagon's current policy of allowing women to serve in combat. If women can stand on the front lines, he wrote, they also can be drafted. Miller, however, issued his ruling without halting the draft, formally called the Selective Service System.
