Has the US military ever mandated circumcision?

Did the US military, at any time in history, ever force male service memvers to get circumcised? If so why? What was the penalty for refusing? I've read accounts that from as recently as Vietnam that soldiers could get a free circumcision if they requested one, is that still policy? Do any current militaries require circumcision?
