What would happen to our young men if there would be another military draft in the United States? This unsettling question rested on the minds of many conservative Anabaptist church leaders. They contacted CAM about their concern, and in 2005 the Conservative Anabaptist Service Program (CASP) was established.
CASP provides alternative places of employment that are approved by the U.S. Selective Service System. Each year, volunteer men work on several pilot projects just as if there were a draft. Apart from giving Anabaptist young men an alternative to war, these rebuilding and forestry projects are blessing many people in our country.
