The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service (NCMNPS) unveiled its interim report of the selective service system. The Selective Service, an independent government agency, maintains information on those eligible to serve in the military, as well as barriers to national and public service. The chair and vice chairs of the commission held a news conference on their initial findings. Vice Chair Debra Wada said that 70 percent of Americans had never considered military service and that 70 percent of recruits come from southern and western states, in comparison to around 40 percent 40-45 years ago.

In 2017, Congress created NCMNPS to review the selective service system and whether women should be required to register as all 18-25 year old males are required to do so. They also are charged with suggesting ways to create a universal expectation of national military, national or public service. close
