Weird... I'm not sure that I signed up 3 months after I turned 17. Don't you have to be 18?

Ah well. Looks like I'm on the short list.

Oh yes, I remember when Mr. Peanut, er... Jimmy Carter, re-enacted this sometime around 1980...

The first 2 numbers should be your birth year, so dang Downhill, if yours is 33! :D :rotfl: :rotfl:

I'm curious...why is selective service mandatory if people keeping reiterating that we have an all-volunteer military?

LOL...

Ken, that wasn't my exact number. I have no idea what it was. I just know that was my particular number that was drawn for me for that year.

Back then, partly how it worked for who goes first was they drew days out of a hat so to speak. Those were assigned a number started from one to 365.

If you birthday fell on say the 45 draw, thats what was used to determine the draft. Or at least my understanding of it. My was #33.... That's a fairly low number considering that even in bigger counties, some of the drafted had a lot larger number....

Now that didn't exactly mean you were drafted. There were other determining factors such as family, medical history, school and if your county had already filled it's quota by volunteers or others drafted.

Sidenote....a 150 number might not mean much if you were from a very small county.

Now as far as I know, there hasn't been an actually drawing since around 1973 even though the register has been as you already stated, has enacted again.


More later. Or...MD or others can comment on the VietNam draft..

What is the penalty for not registering?
If you do not register, you could be prosecuted and fined up to $250,000 and/or be put in jail for up to five years. Registration is also a requirement to qualify for Federal student aid, job training benefits, and most Federal employment.

Are illegal alien males required to register?
Yes. All immigrant alien males, other than those admitted on nonimmigrant visas, must register, whether or not they have a green card.
