I could not agree more with "Bring back the draft" (Forum, Nov. 26). Having lived through the Vietnam era, I am certain a draft would have kept us out of our two most recent, useless wars.

With all the protests and moving to Canada that would occur with a draft, there would be a deleterious effect on the United States starting wars.
