SENIOR MALES 18 & OLDER:  Selective Service registration is required for all MALES when they turn 18.  You may pre-register at 17 years 3 months before 18th birthday, and your registration will be held until you reach 18!  The registration with the Selective Service is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT, and not doing so could have lifetime consequences.  Not registering with the Selective Service means that you would be unable to receive federally funded college loans and grants, would be unable to get into federally funded training and certification programs, be barred from federal employment, and be ineligible for state and local government jobs!  THE REGISTRATION PROCESS TAKES APPROXIMATELY ONE MINUTE TO DO ON LINE AT SSS.GOV.  DO THIS ASAP!
