      The Selective Service cannot force any Draft Board member to vote "Yea"
      to send a young man into Military Service. That would run counter to
      their entire reason for existence.

      In fact, the Selective Service Commanders go out of their way in
      Training Sessions to emphasize this. In fact, if anything they seem to
      be biased in favor of more exemptions. Ironically, the Board members
      themselves seem to be more in favor of not granting exemptions.

      As for "padding one's resume" Bill is correct here. If you wish to pad
      your Military resume, by all means JOIN THE MILITARY!

      If, on the other hand, if you wish to "pad" your elected/appointed
      official resume, join the Draft Board. Or, join the Soil & Water
      Board. Or join the local Zoning Board. Or, join your Neighborhood
      Association Board.

      IMHO, anything at all that shows community involvement on a campaign
      brochure puts you 100 times ahead of candidates lacking such
      credentials.
