The US Military
Since 1973, when the draft ended, involvement in the U.S. military has been voluntary. The makeup of the men and women who serve America today has evolved over the subsequent decades. This volume explores many issues pertaining to the U.S. military, such as what segment of the population is serving, how that translates to patriotism and politicization, and the military-industrial complex. Readers will survey the treatment of women and transgender servicepeople, how the country treats its veterans and addresses their special needs, and many other important considerations.
