not only are many being forced to extend their time of service, but many who have left active or reserve duty years ago are being called up. It is a shock to many who've not seen a uniform for 10-20-30 yrs to suddenly be called back into service.

I admire those who enlist and want to serve. I agree, they should honor the terms of their enlistment. But that is a two way street and as Deb has pointed out, there are lots of men--thousands in fact--who are being forced back into service through this "backdoor draft".

Also, when one enlists, one hopes that one's life and good will for his country are not abused or misused--that one is not being sent into a war willy-nilly, for illegal or imoral purposes. Sadly, the actions of our two most recent presidents pretty much establish that such a hope is misplaced.
