Critics claim the US government is using a backdoor draft to boost military numbers. They say the military is calling up ex-soldiers who've already served their time.
However, the US government says not only is that false, it's not needed. It says recruitment numbers in all areas but the Navy have exceeded expectations.
Area veterans say no one should have to serve after their time is finished.
Eight-district Congressman Mike Rogers says a draft isn't needed, and repeats, there is not a backdoor draft taking place.
