With a lack of able recruits, Peru has introduced a mandatory 2-year military draft for any and all males between the ages of 18 and 25 years old.

The Peruvian government is under fire for including a $700 exemption from the draft and implying that the draft is exclusively for the lower class in Peru. (March 27, 2013 ABC News)
