and this is another email about draft..
thank you my friend..

Dear Faiza,

Just a short note. Your friend who is afraid of being drafted into the US Army is not so well educated--we do not have a draft! All of the troops are volunteers! Mind you, they volunteered believing that they would never be involved in any actual fighting and because of their service they would get valuable training for future non-military jobs and that the government would also pay for their university education. One of my good friends is a member of the clergy for the Navy so she does a lot of counseling and she tells me the majority of the young guys who joined up believed this and their goal was a free college education--they never counted on 9/11 or Bush or now what is happening in Iraq.

Take care and God bless and keep you and your family safe,
