The Civilian Service

In a speech today, General Wesley Clark talked about a concept that I find interesting, he calls it the Civilian Service.
I actually think the “Civilian Service” is a great idea. After September 11th there were millions of Americans that wanted to reach-out and help the victims of the disaster but the infrastructure to organize millions of volunteers didn’t exist. People found ways to help but the process was inefficient. If something like the “Civilian Service” had been in place things might have been different.
It’s nice to see a politician (Clark wouldn’t like that title) thinking outside the box. Bravo for the “Civilian Service” but talking about it isn’t even half the battle.
