Should women be required to register for the draft?  It was discontinued in the U.S. in 1974, but men still have been required to register when they become 18 years old.  Some are suggesting now that in the interests of equality, women should also be required to register.  Mike Wright, a veteran and West Point graduate, will be discussing the implications of this proposed change.
