Are you turning 18 this school year?
Research indicates -that in almost every school district across the country -there is an increase in the number of young men who fail to register. 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.
To help men register, they only need to go to SSS.gov. They can preregister at 17 years and 3 months of age and their registration will be held until they reach age 18. Why is this so important? Because every year, tens of thousands of men turn 26 years of age who failed to register. By then, the registration door is permanently closed. That means they are unable to receive federally funded college loans and grants; are unable to get into federally funded training and certification programs; are barred from all federal employment; ineligible for many state and local government jobs; and immigrants -documented and undocumented -will have a 5-year delay in processing their citizenship application. It can't be stressed enough -45 seconds online registering at SSS.gov can save a man 45 years of headaches and heartaches.
Students this is a reminder to write your name on your Play 21 passes before turning them into the office.
