Log in to Reply Lol. I moved…one, two, three, four, five times between those ages. Never contacted Selective Service about it. Log in to Reply Alex, I’ll take Unenforced Laws for $200. Log in to Reply On my 18th birthday I received 2 things in the mail, selective service forms and a Gillette sensor razor. I still have that razor handle . I can’t imagine how many hundreds or thousands of dollars I spent on razor refills , that was genius on their part. We will never need to use the draft / selective service as long as higher education and healthcare are out of reach . Genius on their part. Log in to Reply I don’t understand why the US still had this system. The US hasn’t run out of men & women who are willing to serve since 9/11. Really since ‘nam tbh.

Log in to Reply I just looked it up, and apparently, as his legal guardian, I was supposed to sign up my disabled adult son who can literally not wipe his own ass. Yup, not gonna do it. I’m too busy wiping his ass. I’d like to send Selective Service this morning’s diaper. It was an experience. Log in to Reply It quite true. You can move repeatedly, even overseas without violating Selective Service laws. You just need to be in the military. They can’t draft you if you’ve already volunteered. Log in to Reply That law doesn’t mean much at the moment. If war breaks out with China and suddenly free college ain’t worth it, the draft will be back ASAP. (I registered with selective service but I never updated it) Log in to Reply Whoops.
