At the age of 18, all males must register for the draft under the Selective Service System, and Americans become eligible to join the military at 18. Is it fair that the U.S. government can force an 18-year-old male to wield a weapon but then prevent that same individual from buying a weapon? Likewise, is it ...

As a Vietnam veteran, I believe the U.S. should expand the Selective Service System to include men, women, LBGT — everyone. It would not have to be primarily military training, but include health, education and disaster response preparation. This public service should be required before anyone could ...
The Selective Service System does mail a reminder to make sure 18 year old men register. By law, they must register within 30 days of their birthday.

I sure hope the selective service system is ready to reinstate the draft, because when we are at war with Russia, China and North Korea we are going to need a lot of soldiers. With bone spurs and without. Swept away. I am just calling about the street sweeper. We live in Tharptown and would appreciate ...
No doubt the death of the selective service system forty-five years ago was caused by its chronic abuse during the Vietnam war.
