Universal Military Training

September 1950
America;9/9/1950, Vol. 83 Issue 23, p574
The author focuses on the proposed bill on Universal Military Training (UMT). The bill calls for all physically fit men between 17 to 20 years to undergo 6 months of training and another 6 months of related activity in the Reserve or National Guard. Military and naval commentator Hanson W. Baldwin mentions that the UMT is limited. The 6-month training cycle would require a large number of instructors, thus reducing the readiness potential of the Regular Army.
