    Young men, please remember you must register with the U.S. Selective Service System within 30 days of your 18th birthday

    • It takes just 45 seconds to register online at SSS.gov.
    • It’s the law and registering can save a man a lifetime of headaches. Benefits lost by failing to register include access to:
      • College loans and grants
      • Job training programs 
      • All federal, and postal employment, and many state, municipal and contractor jobs
      • Delays in citizenship processing up to five years 
    • Online and print material is available at https://www.sss.gov/Resources/Resources 
    • The main reason is because men are not informed that they are required by law to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. Registration is not only a legal requirement, but a civic duty and a key component of our national defense readiness.
