RE: Should we have compulsory service (e.g., military draft) for all young people in U.S.?

I don’t know about a draft, but I like the idea of tying “free college” to an agreement to serve the country. I don’t mean serve in an “Americorps” kind of way, but rather in a military/infrastructure kind of way. It should be service that directly benefits the country in ways that rebuild our cities. 

But giving away college without ANYTHING coming back to the benefit of the taxpayers that underwrite it is simply absurd.
