All-Volunteer Force

сокр AVF
Добровольные вооруженные силы
Часто употребляемое название Вооруженных сил США [Armed Forces of the United States] после отмены призыва [draft] в 1973. Введение добровольной службы стало политической необходимостью в связи с широким недовольством системой призыва в период войны во Вьетнаме [Vietnam War]. В последние годы повышение зарплаты военнослужащих и преимущества при получении образования привлекают в вооруженные силы достаточное число добровольцев, хотя наблюдается тенденция к снижению числа желающих служить мужчин в возрасте 18-21 года.
