Abstract:

In the past few years considerable interest has arisen in the United States over the concepts of volunteerism and national service. In 1989 a comprehensive bill, entitled the Citizenship and National Service Act of 1989, was introduced in the Congress that seeks to establish a voluntary national service which would have components for both civilian and military service. How national service corps members would be incorporated into the Army and what their impact would be on the force are questions the paper attempts to answer. The paper concludes that the Army should limit national service accessions to a relatively small number of soldiers who would fill specially selected positions requiring minimal training.
