No I can see that, it's really not advertised or anything. I only knew because I was reminded.
Well, to end my saga. I asked my friends and apparently I'm the only one who didn't do this. They said they got something in the mail when they turned 18. I'm thinking what happened was...Since I was 17 when I moved out of the house and started living at my University, if it came in the mail to my mom's house it must have gotten lost or trashed. My mom's house at that time had 9 or so people's mail being sent there, so it wouldn't be strange to lose a thing or two.

Either way, I'm too old now to have to worry about it Thumbsup.

I think no one should be required to sign up.

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

It only matters on certain things like government jobs. Your previous non-registration can still be held against you for that kind of thing, but the idea of anyone prosecuting you for that is pretty much in the past. Sounds like you had a good reason not to know.

They've totally fucked up for thousands of years, it's time to give women a try. We might fuck up too but probably not as badly.

Right...we can just make it so only women die in wars. We'll keep things that way until the number of women who die in combat equals the numbers of men who have died in combat in US history. Because equality!

"Failing to register or comply with the Military Selective Service Act is a felony punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or a prison term of up to five years, or a combination of both. Also, a person who knowingly counsels, aids, or abets another to fail to comply with the Act is subject to the same penalties."

That seems absurdly severe given that it's sign-up for something that in all probability wont ever be used...

I never signed up.


Because I had just gone active duty when the requirement came in -- then did seven years active duty -- so I didn't owe the three years inactive reserve after my first enlistment of four years.....

.....

So no need....

Oh, what's this?... a letter informing me that I'm required to fight in "a war against ISIS"... *Sneaks away into TARDIS* "Human ignorance will sort its self out in time, I'm sure. Wheeeeeee! See y'all bitches in a century!"

100 years later... 10 days for me....

"Wow, that was a really neato trip to Gliese 581 c. I should do it again really soo- wait, shit... SHIT! The earth is uninhabited, covered in freshly smoldering craters, and my Geiger counter is going through the fucking roof! Dun Dun DUUUUNNN... to be continued..."

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
