Former NSA director, retired top officers ask Supreme Court to declare military draft unconstitutional | Marine Corps Times

Nine prominent retired generals and flag officers and a former National Security Agency director have asked the Supreme Court to declare military draft unconstitutional. This supports arguments that say that the Selective Service System is unconstitutional as it applies only to men ages 18 to 26 and not women. In the original claim, the high court should overturn a ruling it made in 1981 wherein its primary function was to ensure combat-ready forces for the nation’s defense.
