Do to the upcoming war with North Korea a Draft may be created at any time!!!!


You can register online at www.sss.gov





It is the Law

Virtually all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service.

The law says men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. That means men are required to register with Selective Service sometime during the 30 days before their 18th birthday, their 18th birthday, and the following 29 days after their 18th birthday – that is a 60-day registration period.

Men who do not register with Selective Service within the 60-day window are technically in violation of the law and should register as soon as possible. Late registrations are accepted up to the 26th birthday. However, once a man reaches his 26th birthday and still has not registered with Selective Service, it is too late!

It’s important to know that even though a man is registered, he will not automatically be inducted into the military. Registering with Selective Service does not mean you are joining the military.

In a crisis requiring a draft, men would be called in a sequence determined by random lottery number and year of birth. Then, they would be examined for mental, physical, and moral fitness by the military before being deferred or exempted from military service or inducted into the Armed Forces.

Reasons to Register



Registration is the Law — A man’s only duty right now under the Military Selective Service Act is to register at age 18 and then to let Selective Service know within 10 days of any changes in the information he provided on his registration form until he turns 26 years old.

Fairness and Equity — By registering all eligible men, Selective Service ensures a fair and equitable draft, if ever required. However, there has not been a draft since 1973.

Insurance for the Nation — By registering, a man’s voluntary participation helps provide a hedge against unforeseen threats. It is a relatively low-cost insurance policy for our nation.

Civic Duty — It’s your responsibility to ensure that young men 18 through 25 understand the law so they can make an informed decision about registration compliance. Currently, more than 90 percent of eligible young men are registered. It’s a civic duty of every young man to comply with the law.

Protect Eligibility for Future Benefits — It’s what a man’s got to do. By registering, a young man stays eligible for jobs, college loans and grants, job training, driver’s license in most states, and U.S. citizenship for immigrant men.

One of my biggest regrets.

As it stands now, if I am ever drafted, they will have to literally drag me out of my house, and maybe not even alive. I will not kill or be killed because someone told me so. If I am going to die defending my country and home, I will do so with whatever I have on me defending against ANYONE who wish me harm.

But who cares, this is just a depressed rambling from a pseudo-intellectual, wannabe anarchist, autistic bum.

No, it's some Trump idiot who read today's article about NK launching another missile into the ocean (OOO!!! ), and claiming they can "send one anywhere" (oo, NK vs. Trump...Nerd-fight!!), and now thinks he has his big fifteen minutes of Big Relevant Internet Fame on boards he doesn't usually converse on.

Even though you'd think a little topic like the Draft would have come up maybe once in the TEN FREAKIN' YEARS we were in Iraq and Afghanistan...
Nobody wants to be a weekend Army Reservist anymore, though.

No you will get arrested and possibly get sent to jail for years unless you ditch the country.

So better getting packing if they come calling.

So what r you gunna do try and beat the policemen to death who come to get you with the spoon you got on you that you were eating ramen with?

You gunna get a gun and shoot them dead? They are trained and wont hesitate to smoke your ass if you even show them your intentions.

Then you catch a case for murder... of a policeman... which means you got no way out. The justice system does not take kindly to members of law enforcement being murdered. And then you get life in prison for "standing up for defending your country" or whatever edgy mentality you got going.

If you don't want to die serve a bit of time but go peacefully or skip the county. Take the lesser evil of these scenarios



PENALTIES
Though the last military draft in the United States occurred during the Vietnam War, young men must still register for a possible draft with the Selective Service System. Refusing to register can result in denial of financial aid and admission to state colleges and university. A person may forfeit possible employment opportunities with the government. Penalties could also include 10 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.

Doubtful. Most of my graduating class didn't register with the selective service because our guidance counselors told us it was a "barbaric and sexist" thing. I know my best friend never did sign up for the selective services, worked for the government for 10 years and used FAFSA during all four years of his college. I was only required to register after I went to work for the government (it came up during a security clearance background check). Nothing happened to me, just that I had to go to the post office and register.

North Korea poses an almost 0% threat to anyone. The only reason it hasn't already been overrun and reabsorbed into South Korea is because of the fact that it shares a border with China who have made it clear that a war with North Korea is a war with them. Now this might seem like China backs North Korea, but in actuality they only barely tolerate NK because it poses far less of a threat than any other country might if they have control of the land. If North Korea ever acts up enough that a war with China would be more preferable than allow NK to exist any longer then China would be the first country to invade and put down the threat. After all China might be making plays to be the worlds next superpower, and drawing a war (possibly a world war) to it is not in it's best interest. They'd rather bully the rest of the countries through trade and debt, which is working out quite nicely for them. Far nicer than an all out war would be at least.

Btw if you ever want to know just how big a joke North Korea is just visit South Korea. South Korea flies balloons full of trash across the border just for the laughs.

Completely ridiculous. Despite the complete lunacy displayed here, I did it as soon as I turned 18. They sent me a letter, and the paperwork, literally in the first week of being 18.

Luckily, my health conditions make me unfit for service.

I didn't have much of a choice either. I am in the SS too. The SS... That sounds bad.

I wont change it. It made me laugh.
