If I didn't sign up I would never gotten a cushy Government job. No brainer for me.

I got fucking cheated, then, no GS ranking for me.

One thing I've never gotten about the penalties for not signing up is, we live in a day and age where everyone who is documented could just be automatically signed up. If they know to go looking for you, they could just take care of it.

The only people who would fall through the cracks would be undocumented people, and it's not like they're going to sign up, anyway.

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....

Yabut, that law was drafted way back when that was not practical - and why change something that is no longer useful? Consider

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.

Wait a minute. Is there a reward for reporting that guy? Consider

As a Vet I say yes. They need to be held to the same physical standards as the men. If a man has to run 3 miles, do 100 sit ups and 20 pull ups, a women needs to do the same.

I'll take my heart attack with a side of crispy bacon, now.

Yes. Situps are very important for drone pilots.

I agree. I don't think drone pilots need to run 3 miles very often. Hobo

I imagine there's enough competition for drone pilot positions that they probably won't be drafting people into them any time soon Tongue
