Louisiana teens getting driver's license also register for selective service

There may be no "plans" for a national military draft, but that hasn't kept Louisiana from registering teenagers too young to serve in case conditions change.

During the recently concluded presidential campaigns, the major candidates repeatedly said they had no plans to resume compulsory military service.

Their promises were not reassuring, however, to Larry Chevalier of Glenmora who was alarmed when his 16-year-old son Nathan had to register with the Selective Service System in order to get a driver's license.

Selective Service is the agency charged with collecting names and information about all 18-year-old American and immigrant men for possible conscription.

"I just can't believe it. That amazes me," Chevalier said.

What "amazed" Chevalier was that his son would not be eligible to serve in the military for another two years.

I thought everyone has to register for Selective Service at the age of 18 anyway. If you don't you're not eligible for various grants etc and I believe its a federal offence to refuse.
