As you know, this country stopped the military draft in 1972. Since that time we have relied on volunteers. Now I'd like to ask you a few questions about our armed forces.
E. At the present time, about 22 percent of the armed forces are black. All things considered, do you think there are
too many blacks in the armed forces, about the right number or should there be more blacks in the armed
forces? RECORD UNDER "E."
