Selective Service Registration
According to Federal Law, all men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday. You must register with Selective Service to stay eligible for student loans, government jobs, job training and obtaining or renewing a drivers license in most states. Registration is easy and takes only a matter of minutes.  Simply go online at www.sss.gov visit the local Post Office and ask for a registration card.
 
The ASVAB
Students who are serious about exploring their military options should take the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery).  The ASVAB is an nine-part, three-hour test designed to identify a student's aptitudes and strengths.  Taking the ASVAB in no way obligates a student to the military.  A student must, however, obtain a minimum score on the ASVAB in order to enlist in the military.  Recruiters usually make the testing arrangements for the ASVAB.  Call the local recruiting office to schedule a testing date.
