The Pentagon recommended that women be required to register for the draft to boost military enrollment, according to a Defense Department report addressed to Congress.
The report, obtained by the Washington Times, said the Selective Service System would increase enrollment by 11 million people if the U.S. required women to sign up for the draft.
“It appears that, for the most part, expanding registration for the draft to include women would enhance further the benefits presently associated with the Selective Service System,” the report said.
Only male citizens and immigrants between the ages of 18 and 25 are currently required to sign up for the draft, according to the Selective Service System website.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2017/10/26/pentagon-recommends-requiring-women-sign-draft/” target=”_blank”]
