Lincoln received the authority for a federal draft, but the number actually drafted into service was quite small, totalling only about two percent of the force. WWI brought on the first large scale conscription effort. The third draft was for WWII and it expired as the Law of the Land in 1947 after a total of 10 million men had been inducted. Draft number four was put into place in 1948 and covered the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and ended in December of 1972..

If that particular U.S. base is considered to be U.S. soil then yes. It depends on the terms of agreement between the U.S. military and the host country, though a child born to at least one U.S. citizen parent is automatically a citizen regardless of where they are born. Regardless of whether tha…t US installation is considered US soil or not, it depends on the current laws as pertains to citizenship and naturalization. There have been periods in US history and specific to certain military installations where parents of a child born overseas were required to submit paperwork to establish that child's status as a US citizen. As of this current time (2014), US military bases located outside US sovereign territory are NOT considered US soil. That is, if the military base is not located in one of the US states, territories, or protectorates, the base is NOT US soil, and, as such, babies born on them are NOT afforded automatic citizenship via the 14th Amendment. They can qualify for automatic citizenship via other means, primarily if either parent is a US citizen. Ships of the US Navy while at sea, and aircraft of the US Air Force while airborne, ARE considered US sovereign soil, and DO qualify the child for 14th Amendment automatic citizenship.
