      A volunteer military or all-volunteer military is one which derives its manpower from volunteers or as a voluntary occupation, rather than conscription or mandatory service. A country may offer attractive pay and benefits through military recruitment to attract potential recruits. Many countries with volunteer militaries reserve the right to renew conscription in the event of an emergency.   In , the United States made the bold move to an All-Volunteer Force (AVF). This was done for a number of reasons. First, there were simply too many young men coming of draft-eligible age each year compared to the needs of the military; this meant that drafting could no longer be universal.

The purpose of this book is to create a comprehensive record of the more than 30 years of policy and economic analysis that was responsible for today’s all-volunteer force.

The AVF has, largely, been deemed a success by policy makers as well as the general public since its inception during the Vietnam War up until the conflicts initiated by the 9/11 attacks. A Brief History of the AVF. The Nixon administration created the All-Volunteer Force inin the final days of the Vietnam War.

Competitive military. Forty-five years ago, in the wake of the Vietnam War, the draft came to an end. Since then the U.S. has fielded an all-volunteer military force. Over the next couple of weeks, NPR will be looking at what that has meant for each of the armed services and for the country.

This morning we start with the Army. During a time when the United States military is fighting two wars simultaneously, scholars, military veterans, and members of the general public discussed the origins of today's army on November 16 as part of the launch of Beth Bailey's new book, America's Army: Making the All-Volunteer Force.

The book begins, Bailey explained, with the crisis. For the last 10 years, the United States has conducted a nearly unprecedented experiment: fighting two wars with a completely volunteer force.

Many commentators predicted failure and collapse. Instead, military forces have remained effective even in the face of great stress, uncertain prospects for success and declining public support for the wars.

Sincethe AVF has successfully safeguarded the nation’s freedom, prosperity and way of life. In large part, this success is built on long-term investments in the readiness of the force to meet challenges to American security. This study takes us through the turbulent years of the Army's transition from the draft to an all-volunteer army.
