US Gov Draft? Our 19 yr old son just got a letter from the Fed Gov 'Selective Service System'
Our 19 year old son just got a letter in the mail from the US Government "Selective Service System". He has to register with them online via www(dot)sss(dot)gov or by phone within 10 days. CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE

IS THIS LETTER LIGIT OR A SCAM? IS THIS A STANDARD LETTER TEEN BOYS GET WHEN THEY GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL AND ARE NOT IN COLLEGE?

The letter states "Failure to do so is a Federal crime punishable by a fine and imprisonment"...signed by Lawrence G. Romo - director. The return address is PO Box in Palatine IL 60094-4733.

What the heck? Is the US Gov preparing our youth for an upcoming DRAFT??

Maybe we'll start looking for property in Canada.....1dunno1

eh... The Selective Service Card Is LEGIT... The Gov't has been doing this since well who Knows....... This is just to have a registry of Draft ELIGIBLE Males....

Eh... Technically the entire Male population between 17 and 40 is a Government Militia. This is know as the Reserve Militia.. This was a on the books since the Militia Act of 1903

On January 27, 1973, Secretary of Defense Melvin R. Laird announced the creation of an all-volunteer armed forces, negating the need for the military draft.

On March 29, 1975, President Ford signed Proclamation 4360, Terminating Registration Procedures Under Military Selective Service Act, eliminating the registration requirement for all 18–25 year old male citizens.

On July 2, 1980, however, President Carter signed Proclamation 4771, Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act, retroactively re-establishing the Selective Service registration requirement for all 18–26 year old male citizens born on or after January 1, 1960. Only men born between March 29, 1957, and December 31, 1959, were completely exempt from Selective Service registration.

The first registrations after Proclamation 4771 took place on Monday, July 21, 1980, for those men born in January, February and March 1960 at U.S. Post Offices. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays were reserved for men born in the later quarters of the year, and registration for men born in 1961 began the following week.

I've heard it's the law to register. However, they can't make you join or take an oath.

No it is not. You must sign up. Back 20 years ago i got the same type of letter, except we had to go to the post office for the sign up slip.

The gov. actually will pursue charges on anyone, without monies, whom doesn't sign.

I said this before so I'll say it again, they make you register at 18 because by 30 most have become conscientious objectors. they gotta get 'em young.
