The All-Volunteer Force Forum is an apolitical network of national security experts, military officers, academics, and concerned citizens established to examine the methodology for populating the US Armed Forces.  The Forum seeks to encourage, facilitate, and document a fact-based national dialogue in response to its position that the All-Volunteer Force is unfair, inefficient, and unsustainable and contributes to the civil-military gap and the militarization of US foreign policy.  We consider this to be an issue that affects not only national security but also the social fabric of our democracy.
