Fed Reminds New York Teens to Register For Selective Service
The Selective Service System is reminding New York teenage men to register their information in the event that a military draft is needed. There's a huge penalty if they don't.
The military draft may have ended in the mid-'70s but registration for the Selective Service System has been the law since 1917. This system is in place should a military draft ever become needed for our nation's security. Some adult men may not know that this registration is mandatory.
