The problem with mandatory military service, or conscription, is manifold. If it was of benefit to our heavily modernized military it would be in place and actively used. Draftees are practically worthless cannon fodder compared to volunteers, and when you consider the logistic load of boots in a combat zone the better economic decision is to pay enough in wages and benefits to attract those volunteers.
