Much to the surprise of many readers, The Draft is still a viable law in the United States of America. It did not die after the Vietnam war.
From a U S Government Info Page HERE the following is explained:
Selective Service Reg
The Selective Service System wants you to know that the requirement to register for the draft did not go away with the end of the Vietnam War. Under the law, virtually all male U.S. citizens, and male aliens living in the U.S., who are ages 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service.
Since there is no draft currently in effect, and men are not being classified for service, disabled men, clergymen, and men who believe themselves to be conscientiously opposed to war must also register.
Penalties for Failure to Register for the Draft
Men who do not register could be prosecuted and, if convicted, fined up to $250,000 and/or serve up to five years in prison.
As Written By The Associated Press:
The top Army and Marine Corps generals say they believe all women should have to register for the draft now that combat jobs are open to them.
The military service leaders say they will not lower standards to bring women into the more grueling jobs.
They told the Senate Armed Services Committee that it will take up to three years before the combat posts are fully integrated.
Army Gen. Mark Milley and Marine Gen. Robert Neller said women should be included in the requirement to register for the selective service at age 18. But Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Army Acting Secretary Patrick Murphy would only say that the issue should be discussed.
