Brethren Agree to Revive 'Alternative Service' Draft Programs

"Leaders of the Church of the Brethren say they will follow through on a request from the Selective Service to have 'alternative service' programs in place for conscientious objectors if a draft is reinstated."

Found this thanks to the History News Network....why in the world would the Selective service be interested in reestablishing alternative service programs? Could it be the Army and Marine Corps are failing to meet recruiting goals?
