    Okay, so I'm guessing that means you were born between 1972 and 1980 which means that once you turned 18, (sometime between 1990 & 1998), you were required to register with the Selective Service within 30 days before or after your eighteenth birthday.


    It is the LawVirtually all male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrants, whether documented or undocumented, residing in the United States, who are 18 through 25, are required to register with Selective Service.

    The law says men must register with Selective Service within 30 days of their 18th birthday
    . That means men are required to register with Selective Service sometime during the 30 days before their 18th birthday, their 18th birthday, and the following 29 days after their 18th birthday – that is a 60-day registration period.Men who do not register with Selective Service within the 60-day window are technically in violation of the law and should register as soon as possible. Late registrations are accepted up to the 26th birthday. However, once a man reaches his 26th birthday and still has not registered with Selective Service, it is too late!

    Nope, we fall into this window.


    On July 2, 1980, President Carter signed Proclamation 4771 (Registration Under the Military Selective Service Act) in response to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan,[23] retroactively re-establishing the Selective Service registration requirement for all 18- to 26-year-old male citizens born on or after January 1, 1960.[24] As a result, only men born between March 29, 1957, and December 31, 1959, were completely exempt from Selective Service registration.[25]

    The first registrations after Proclamation 4771 took place at U.S. Post Offices on Monday, July 21, 1980, for men born in calendar year 1960. Pursuant to the Presidential proclamation, all those men born in 1960 were required to register that week. Men born in 1961 were required to register the following week. Men born in 1962 were required to register during the week beginning January 5, 1981. Men born in 1963 and after were required to register within 30 days after their 18th birthday.[24]

    Oh... That window. I forgot about that.

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    That's close but not exactly.

    My contention is not that if you can't register with the government, that it doesn't exist - but that government shouldn't be involved at all. HOWEVER, since the government is going to shove their all-knowing, all-seeing, all-powerful nose in my business, they should do it without regard to race, creed, sexual orientation, etc.
    Life is too short to pretend you don't like being choked during sex.

    Agreed. So, was there a race, creed, or sexual-orientation clause in any of the states' marriage laws at the time SCOTUS changed the definition of marriage?
