What is United States Selective Service System registration?

The Military Selective Service Act of 1967 is a registration program used by the U.S. government to create and maintain a list of names of men from which to draw in case of a national emergency requiring rapid expansion of our armed forces. By registering all young men, the United States Selective Service System ensures that a future draft will be fair and equitable. Selective Service registration can also be done at high schools, colleges and universities, and via the Selective Service Web site at www.sss.gov. For more information call 1-888-655-1825 or visit www.sss.gov.
