I have been very much FOR this for years! Bring it back and put some of these street corner punks to work rebuilding OUR nation!!
Teach them a trade, respect for authority and build some self confidence & purpose in life!!
Also, make it mandatory for women as well, like they do in Israel and a few other countries.
Boot camp alone would accomplish a lot!! I remember mine...it was hard as hell, but I tell you, I learned to respect my commanding officers and I learned a lot about my physical and personal limitations!!
Yes.... 1,000 times YES !!!
