Feedback at 5:00: Women and the Draft

The Department of Defense recently announced it would allow women into combat roles.

Now, top military leaders say since those jobs are open to women, they should have to register for the draft.

Army General Mark Milley and Marine General Robert Neller said women should be included in the requirement to register for the selective service at age 18.

Do you agree or disagree with their stance, and why?
