Bahleted: Is someone invading us? Did I miss something?


Selective service reminders have been around since the selective service was started. I even got one after I had just gotten out of the navy in 1991 after over 8 years of active duty making me exempt from having to re-register. I called because I was confused and the guy on the phone told me to ignore it.

I'm guessing that they take the shotgun approach to the reminder notifications.

Most of them don't like it when I point out that I think that females should have to register for the draft as well.

Radioactive Ass: yyyy/mm/dd always is a better option than yy/mm/dd. Did we learn nothing from that whole Y2K thing?


Think about when these gentlemen's records must of been entered into the systems.  When the selective service record keeping systems were created.  Etc..  They were created when computer systems lasting over half a century wasn't considered, and bits(memory/storage) was expensive.

Besides, there are better ways to store electronic data.  Done right you can store 255 years in a single byte, and over 14k in two.  8 bytes allow you to keep track of dates to the second over eons.

ransack.: Yeah well the post office isn't perfect. What the he'll do you expect for 42 farking cents?


The post office forwards the forms to the selective service, they don't run it. I've never heard of the selective service hammering someone for not registering. That might happen if the draft was ever reinstated but until then I wouldn't worry about it. They just send out scarily worded letters to anyone that fits their database profile. Namely male, name (PFC would change the name, I signed up for unemployment which is how I got into the CT database even though I had registered in CA a decade earlier) and address change. The filters in that database are obviously crappy and apparently there's not a lot of crosstalk between areas of influence.

Sign up because it's the law, but it's not like the selective service enforcement bureau (an entity that doesn't exist) is going to bust down your door and drag you off to boot camp jail if you don't. The odds of the draft coming back are slim bordering on none short of all of Europe and Asia breaking out into an all out ground war.

I think that it's even simpler than that (I doubt that these gentlemen's records were entered into the selective service systems at all considering that there was no such thing as a computer back then). I think that they just data mine things like the census records (ancestry.com uses them so who knows how far they go back) or unemployment records and then match names, ages calculated by birth date and addresses to what the selective service records have. Any non-match gets a letter.

Pure shotgun approach, then see what you hit after the fact.

Well I turned 30 last month so I think I'm too old to even voluntarily join any branch but the Air Force.

I wouldn't respond to a draft notice anyway. I would have probablies volunteered for WW2 or the War of Northern Aggression or 1812 or the Revolution if I had been the right age thens though. Not killin ur d00dz if I don't really care about the business, I tell you what.

And yes, I'm a proud lifelong Hoosier and I support the Union position in the American Civil War and I'm not racist but I started calling it the War of Northern Aggression to irk three redneck guys from Tennessee (but I repeat myself) that I worked with. Surprising, I know, but I swear, they were from Tennessee and they actually got W2 forms.

I know that the Bruce nuclear plant in Ontario was looking for someone like that for their dusty old mainframe.  And they plan to keep using it until at least 2022 they said.

2014-07-11 07:01:22 AM  
Somehow it doesn't surprise me a bit.
In late '68 or early '69 (can't remember, too lazy to look it up), the folks who at that time were running our side for the Greater Southeast Asian War Games, decided that there was too much uncertainty to the Selective Service process that they were using.
So, in their infinite wisdom (?) they had a lottery withing a lottery.
One night, live from Selective Service Headquarters in Washington, D.C., in living black and white, 2 members of the SS (irony anyone?) stood in front of 2 Fishbowls. In Fishbowl A, All the letters of the alphabet. In Fishbowl B all the months of the year broken down into one or two week increments, such as Jan 1-15, or some such nonsense.
Gentlebeing A would draw a ticket from his Fishbowl and announce the letter, that letter being the first letter of someone's last name.
Gentlebeing B would then draw from his bowl a ticket with the month and day indicated on it.
This combination would be designated Slot #1
So if the letter drawn was "A" and the month period was Jan 1-15, then any eligible candidate for the draft whose last name started with an "A" such as Anderson, who was born between Jan 1st to Jan 15th would be the first group to be called up for the draft.
I forget exactly what position my letter date combination was, but it was in the Top Ten.
After a long and intense discussion with ex wife #1, we figured the safest thing to do was for me to enlist. Unlike some folk, I didn't have rich relatives who made substantial donations to colleges so that Jr could stay in school, drunk and drugged, or who could afford to buy me a deferment, or refused to register stating "that I have better things to do with my life".
Wound up doing a 4 and 2 in the Navy. Four years active service with 2 years in the Naval Ready Reserve.
Did a "Show the Flag" cruise in the Med.
Did a 10 month tour off the coast of North Vietnam on Yankee Station.
Got out, said I'd had enough of uniforms.
Found out I missed it, but not enough to go back on full active duty. Joined the Army Guard. Did almost 20 years before being released from Active Drill Status due to health problems.
With a combined service time of almost 25 years, I was eligible for a Veteran's Pension and Benefits to start on my 60th birthday.
Filed all the papers, sent them off. Got the return package describing how the payout and benefit system would work.
Buried on the last page of the packet was the procedure for Recall to Active Service.
When I first enlisted in 1969, a Career NCO was subject to recall, in the event of total national disaster, until his/her 65th birthday.
My but times have changed. As a Career Senior NCO, I am subject to recall up until my 75th birthday. But things would really have to be going down the tubes according to the letter.
Nope, don't surprise me a bit.

(and that post was painful to read, let the word wrap function take care of formatting aside from paragraphs).

That fishbowl system actually sounds to me like a pretty fair way to do it to me, if you have to do it. No picking on one group over the other. Any system where a 1 out of 52 chance of being picked first or last isn't all that bad as far as odds go. Those are Vegas odds in favor of the house (you being the house), but someone has to bust.

Volunteer enlisting in the navy was probably the best out for you (if you really wanted to increase your odds of not getting killed in that particular war then submarines would have been the golden out, just volunteer one more time). All of the medals, none of the risk. Well, unless you ended up on the Scorpion in 1968 that is.

I never did register. I think I knew I was supposed to, but it didn't really seem like that big a deal to my 18 year old self, and it kept slipping my mind. They never bothered me about it, and now I'm too old. Oh well.

ransack.: Well I turned 30 last month so I think I'm too old to even voluntarily join any branch but the Air Force.


You can still join the Army National Guard.  I know the age cap for enlistment there is 35 (specifically, you must ship out for Basic Training before your 35th birthday).

They change the age caps based on how many servicemembers they need.  When the Iraq War was at its peak, they had lifted the age cap for the Active Duty Army as high as 42 for a little while.

If you're serious about joining up, go and talk to a recruiter, even if you think you're too old.  At 30 there should still be a few options open for you in the military.  It might just be in the Guard or Reserves, but 30 isn't too old to join up.

http://usmilitary.about.com/od/joiningthemilitary/f/faqenlage.htm
Question: What is the maximum age to enlist in the Military?

Answer: The maximum age of non-prior service enlistment, under federal law used to be age 35. In 2006 the Army tried to convinced Congress to change this to age 44. Congress thought age 44 was too high, but raised the maximum enlistment age, under law, from 35 to age 42.


Please write me from Tank Hill. Went to Basic there with a guy who was in his late 20's. We all called him "The Old Man." He completed Basic though. Sure showed us young whippersnappers.

You're so right. Sorry to have hurt your eyes. Comes from trying to remember events 40+ years ago while operating on  too much coffee and too little sleep. Originally enlisted for a 6 year hitch to go to Nuc Propulsion School and then into subs. I failed the physical for submarine service and they had to renegotiate my enlistment while I was in Basic. Hence the 4 and 2. Wound up as an Ordnance Tech on an aircraft carrier.

Selective service reminders have been around since the selective service was started. I even got one after I had just gotten out of the navy in 1991 after over 8 years of active duty making me exempt from having to re-register. I called because I was confused and the guy on the phone told me to ignore it.

I'm guessing that they take the shotgun approach to the reminder notifications.


That's odd.  I never received one, as I had signed up under delayed entry when I was 17, so I never got the reminder, at least that I can recall.  Perhaps my parents got it while I was active duty and just threw it out.
