11,226,444 young men registered for U.S. draft

DETROIT (AP) — The names of 387,110 Michigan men ages 18 to 26 are on record at a federal computer center in suburban Chicago, just in case the United States resumes the military draft.

In all, the computer contains records on 11,226,444 young men. The United States hasn't conscripted people since 1973, but now the draft is getting some renewed attention.
