right, your legally required to apply for the draft even when a war is not going on. good way to keep from being drafted is to go to college. army tends to choose the high school drop outs to serve in the trenches before taking america's college students. also, try saying your religion prohibits you from fighting, it may not get you out of serving in the army, but you might atleast get a desk job. however, in my opinion, i don't think there ever will be another draft. with the increase in technology, wars are being fought by pushing buttons to launch bombs opposed to sending thousands of soldiers to their death. thus, there shouldn't be a real need for a draft.
