It has recently been proposed that we adopt an all-volunteer army. This policy was tried on a limited basis several years ago and was a miserable failure. The level of education of the volunteers was unacceptably low, while levels of drug use and crime soared among army personnel. Can we trust our national defense to a volunteer army? The answer is clearly “No.”

Which of the following statements, if true, most strengthens the author’s claim that an all-volunteer army should not be implemented?


A. The general level of education has risen since the first time an all-volunteer army was tried.

B. The proposal was made by an organization called Citizens for Peace.

C. The first attempt to create a volunteer army was carried out according to the same plan now under proposal and under the same conditions as those that exist today.

D. A volunteer army would be less expensive than an army that relies on the draft.

E. The size of the army needed today is smaller than that needed when a volunteer army was first tried.
