    The National Defense Act of 1916 was signed in by Woodrow Wilson on June 3, 1916 to create new military programs such as the Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (JROTC, jrotc.org) and the ROTC (Same thing, just a collage program...) and make larger numbers of national guard while preparing troops for war. It was signed in as a tool to help recruit more soldiers in a time of crisis, WWI.

    In preparation for the American entry into World War I, and The National Defense Act and Naval Construct Act of 1916 were passed amidst the "preparedness controversy", a brief frenzy of great public concern over the state of preparation of the United States armed forces. All of those should help you.

    Congress passed the acts as a means to provoke war. Congress passed the acts to prepare Americans for the possibility of U.S. involvement in the war. Congress passed the acts as a reaction to the sinking of the Lusitania and the Sussex. Congress passed the acts because Germany resumed their unrestricted submarine warfare. Im sorry but which one is it? @ilovenyc
