Not anymore. That law has been changed.

Uncle Sam (and King George II) needs more bodies to send overseas to fight his war, so they can send them back in body bags.

Your best bet would be to hope there's not another draft.

All males over 18 are required to register with selective service. There are such things as a hardship discharge once a person is in the military.

No, however, you can not go into a combat zone. I had a friend on board my ship which was in that position. We were being deployed into a possible hostel area. My friend objected about being transfer ed because of this. He didn't have a choice.

If you mean the US, it currently is an all volunteer army. As long as you don't join or sign up for the National Guard, you don't have to go to war.

It is a volunteer Army - at least in the US.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

During the time of the draft, the youngest male child or the only male child were exonerated from being drafted. However, if you join the military voluntarily, you are not exempted from being sent into combat!!(USA)

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No



Lewis Y
Not in USA. You can apply for hardship exemption in certain cases if you are already in the military..

There is an exemption if your brother(or I guess sister now), was killed in action, and you are active military.

Previous answer made valid point about volunteer army.

Depends on what country you are in, and your present status.

In most countries that practice conscription, or "drafting" young people for military service, there are specific exemptions for the only child of either gender, as well as for the only male child. Sometimes this means such people must participate in alternative service to the country - teaching, or helping with public works, and so forth - or entering the military in non-combatant roles. That might mean medical or supply services and usually means service in the home country or well away from zones of combat.

In the United States, you could go online and look up the "Selective Service," the organization that would be in charge if the draft was re-instated. If you are already in the military, then you must look up the regulations on the website of the service in which you serve. Alternatively, you can ask a chaplain, or a local representative of the Red Cross. If you are not in the United States then I regret not knowing how to advise you for this kind of information.

"Exonerated" by the way is the wrong word - it means to be relieved of guilt or responsibility for an action or position (something you would want anyhow) - what you really mean is "excused" or "exempted." Two points for spelling it right, however!
