    Zero.

    If there is ever a war that would require drafting, it would be over before anyone drafted could have completed basic training.

    About the same as a member of Antifa winning a kindergarten spelling contest.

    In Canada, virtually nil.

    We've only ever had the draft twice, at the ends of WWI, and WWII, and we have never sent conscripts to fight, unless they subsequently volunteered.

    IF a draft ever happened, due to the Bill of Rights, ages could include 18-60.

    There hasn't been a draft in the US since 1973.

    It doesn't appear that there is a current need for a military conscription.

    No one can predict what the future holds. If there are wars in the future, etc. There is currently a standby Selective Registration for male US residents, 18 years old and older.

    There would have to be a world war and then it passes through senate. They went through Iraq and Afghanistan and didn’t need anyone as there was enough volunteers.

    Right now only 1 person out of 5 is fit for military duty.   If we need more than volunteers we will have to either lower the standards OR start a draft.   Personally I think we should have a draft.  Serving your country for 2-4 years is not going to kill you......usually.
