East Texans React To Military Draft Proposal

We took the debate about reinstating the military draft to the streets, asking East Texans their thoughts.

Miguel Ibarra says he opposes a military draft.

"It's not right to force them. If you're willing to do it on your own, that's fine, but if you're going to be forced to do it, it's not right," says Miguel.

Joyce Lollar supports a military draft.

"They're going to need some more men. If everybody that's already signed up is over there already, they're going to have to do something to get some more people to serve in the service," says Lollar.

Conley Owen says, "The military your going to end up with is not going to be as good. I know, because I was in a draft military. I was not drafted, but I was in a draft military.  It won't be as smart. It won't be as intelligent. It probably won't work as well, but you'll get more people. If that's what you need, there's no way around it.
