I'm 17 and turning 18 in a week. Yesterday in the mail, i got a friendly letter in the mail from the Selective Service saying "it's time to register".
I'm trying to decide what to do. I need to register to get Financial Aid (which we were counting on), as well as have any hope for a stable government
job in the future.
I just DO NOT want to fight a war. It's not that i'm afraid of it, i just see myself and others as more than cannon fodder and would rather not fight
a pointless war so the rich can stay rich. With the way the world is going, i wouldn't be surprised if the draft is reinstated within the next couple
years. And i would be the perfect candidate. I'm 5'9", 135lbs and athletic (run distance in track).
What i'm hoping is that even if the draft is reinstated, i could have an exemption. I take Zoloft for anxiety and i know it's an exemption, at least
for the voluntary draft.
