Time for national service?

Watch this conversation between Morning Joe contributor Mike Barnicle and Jeremy Butler, CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, about the benefits of a national public service program in our country, where only one percent of the population currently serves in the military. "We have been at war as a nation now for 19 years. Memorial Day used to have much more significance in this nation—three or four decades ago—when there was more familiarity with people who served in wars—in World War II, in Korea. Do you think that this might be a great time (for)...mandatory national public service in this country?" Barnicle asks in seeking a deeper appreciation for those who give back to the country on this Memorial Day.
