The bipartisan, 11-member commission was created by Congress last year to develop recommendations to encourage and inspire more Americans—specifically young people—to serve their country and strengthen democracy. The National Commission on Military, National, and Public Service is igniting a national conversation about the importance of service as it develops recommendations for the American public, Congress, and the president by March 2020. The commission is working to increase participation in national, public, and military service by all Americans and review the military selective service process. The commission will gather recommendations by holding public meetings, visiting service sites, talking with young people, and meeting with government, nonprofit, civic and for-profit leaders.

 

The commission invites the public to share comments on its website www.inspire2serve.gov or via its request for comments published in the Federal Register. Please join the digital conversation on service by following the commission on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or by following the hashtag #Inspire2Serve.
