The Draft Is Coming ! The Draft is Coming!
The Selective Service is updating its plans for drafting healthcare workers in a case of a national emergency that swamps the military medical corps.

Apparently the memo warned agency officials to be discreet, because '"overtures from Selective Service to the medical community will be seen as precursors to a draft," and that could alarm the public.'

You think?

The article goes further to note that the military is concentrating on registering specialists in various areas, not on drafting everyday civilians. That makes me feel so much more secure.
