U.S. Army Alert: You Are Not Being Drafted

The U.S. Army is trying to calm fears of a new draft, after recruiting offices across the country received panicked phone calls from people saying they or their children had been conscripted.

Officials say text messages claiming individuals are being called to war in Iran and must contact a recruitment center “are false and were not initiated by this command or the U.S. Army.”
