From BBC:

[…] The American defence department has begun a recruitment drive for local draft boards, raising questions about a possible revival of conscription. A notice on a department website invites United States citizens over the age of 18 to volunteer for the boards. The board members will decide who can be exempted if a draft is needed. […] There has been no draft in the US since it was ended by Congress in 1973, the year that US troops pulled out of Vietnam. […] Pentagon officials have denied any move to re-instate the draft, saying that this would require a conflict of the magnitude of World War II. They say the Selective Service System (SSS), which runs the draft boards, is merely launching a routine recruitment drive as 80% of places are now vacant.
