Since he has stated he isn't going to reinstate the draft and states the cost is about 5 billion, I am assuming it is volutary enlistment by process of elimination.

He states money can be transferred from elsewhere in the Pentagon Budget.
Given what we know about waste and lack of accountability at the Pentagon, it seems to me it will be relatively easy to find 5 billion dollars that would be better spent expanding our troops...especially given that we ARE stretched in HUMAN power but have plenty of bombs. Since he doesn't favor expanding NUKES, I'd have to guess that is ONE area he would pull it from.
