From The Director of Selective Service

Every year, more than two million men turn 18 years old and are required by federal law to register with the U.S. Selective Service.  They may also submit their registration when they turn 17 1/2 years old, however, failing to register before turning 26 years of age will cause them to lose benefits for life that are essential for their future success.  Research has shown that those who neglect to register after turning 18 are more likely to never register at all.  Registration at 18 provides young men with access to college student loans and grants; job training programs; all Federal, U.S. Postal, many State government and contractor positions; and access to citizenship.  Simply put, 45 seconds online at can save a man 45 years of headaches and heartaches. See your Guidance Counselor if you have any questions.
