Hi everyone, Another surprise came in the mail yesterday. Our DS received a nasty letter from the U.S. Selective Service System. He turned 18 in September (after reporting to KP in the summer at 17.) Bottom line; we received bad advice from mulitple people including parents and alum regarding this issue. Hopefully, everyone else is on track, but just in case, wanted to post here. Given the fact that the USMMA is significantly different than the other Service Academies, our sons must register with the Selective Service. So much so, that KP is spelled out clearly in the exemption section as not eligible. Here is the blurb, listing acceptable exceptons, from the form under item 2 in the Exemption Section: ".....Attending a Service Academy (other than Merchant Marine Academy);or enrolled in an Officer Program at the Citadel, North Georgia College, Norwich University, Virginia Military Institute, Texas A&M, or Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. ..........." I have mailed our DS the letter and form so that he can register ASAP.
