The war in Afghanistan is now the longest in American history – many new enlistees weren’t even born when it began 18 years ago. Elliot Ackerman served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine, and he joins host Krys Boyd to discuss why, he says, we’re writing blank checks for protracted conflicts with an all-volunteer military. His article “Why Bringing Back the Draft Could Stop America’s Forever Wars” appears in Time magazine.
