Fake Text: No You Did Not Get Drafted Via Text
Yes, we do have a little bit of a situation going on in Iran. Ok. It's a pretty big deal. And ever since things have heated up over there, over here a lot of people have been speculating and spreading a lot of "sketchy" info. Before we even continue, do your own research. Fact check everything. And don't believe anything you hear second hand. Or in this case, on your phone via text telling you that you've been drafted.
If you got a text about you being drafted, from the Army, and you should head to your local recruiting station to report for duty in Iran, IT IS A HOAX.
The draft hasn’t been in effect since 1973, and since then, the military has always been volunteer-based. Now if the U.S. returned to a military draft in 2020, here’s how you would find out about it. Congress and the President would first have to pass and sign legislation authorizing the draft, according to the Selective Services System, the agency in charge of a military draft. Then there would be a lottery, starting with men turning 20 this year. If the army required more draftees, the lottery would move to men between 21 to 25 years old. The agency says 18-year-olds and those turning 19 probably would not be drafted. (wusa9)
