    Hi there tnapp,

    You are OK because you were "exempt" and got the letter to prove it. No problems for you, my friend.

    But with me, I was NOT exempt so never got the letter from them. They said I should have registered and failed to do so. Personally, I find it pretty unreasonable myself, but there you go.

    I served in several different Forces over there;

    MoD Police
    Surrey Police
    Cheshire Police

    plus several "other" law enforcement agencies.

    You'll have to drop me a P.M. and we'll have a chat about the old days, bla, bla...

    I am a Dual-National (British / American) who was born in the U.S.A. but my parents took me over to the U.K. when I was only 2 months old.

    I lived over there for more than 40 years, before moving back to the U.S.A. in February 2007. Obviously, I had never heard about Selective Service myself, until I started applying for jobs over here.

    I got told that "I should have known" even though I was living in another country, over 4,000 miles away! (which I think is a fairly reasonable excuse)

    Lucky for me, it hasn't really effected my career too much.

    I just had to avoid the jobs that insisted on S.S. Registration # and on some applications, just put N/A. It's not like I can register now, at the age of 43 years old!

    Anyway, that's my story on the Selective Service thing....

    Nikmac isn't a cop, that's for sure. Probably a Security Guard.

    FWIW, when I lived in Taunton (down the road from Boston) we had SS information in HS. He's full of excrement.

    I'm from the north east and I knew about selective service registration

    Dunno how you "signed a contract" either without passing the MEPS physical

    Maybe you signed the paperwork to go to MEPS and do the ASVAB and physical, the USMEPCOM Form 680-3A-E (Which I just checked and it does ask for a Selective Service# right on it)

    You need certain PUHLES score to be eligible to be slotted in to certain jobs and you wouldn't get a PUHLES without a physical from MEPS, so you couldn't sign a contract without it...

    LOL, dude you guys are too much, read what im writing. I didnt say no one in Boston had ever herd of the SS, just that most of the people ive been talking too are not that familiar with it. Im not trying to make excuses, I know I didnt register, but I didnt do it knowingly or with the intent to avoid service. Someone else said the thing about parents telling you about SS, thats the only reason I brought that up so take it easy gunpowder with the TG attitude.

    Are you for real? Are you telling me that no-one in "Boston" has ever heard of the Selective Service? I'm POSITIVE that I can find SOMEONE on this board that is from Boston who has heard of the selective service...and unlike you, they registered. If you're an LEO then you should know by now that you can't fix ignorance...'nuff said.

My desire to serve came from myself, I honestly do appoligize if I didnt go about it completely the correct way.
    Am I suppose to feel bad for you? Are you trying to turn this into a, "feel bad for me, it's mommy and daddy's fault" crap? As was stated earlier, take some responsibility, you and only YOU failed to register, YOU dropped the ball and now YOU get to deal with the consequences...deal with it.

    Well from the looks of it as your attitude, I am suprised you are a LEO, since you failed to even bring that up before. So for one, change your profile to reflect you are a LEO.

    Local govt, is not Federal Govt. I have seen it asked before on Law Enforcement applications/backgrounds asking for a Selective Service number. So either, once again, you dropped the ball or your BI did. Either way, now that we know you are a LEO, then to me it's even more ignorant on your part that you stick to your guns with no knowledge of the Selective Service requirements. But now that you are applying or attempting to apply for the Federal Govt. again I will say this. Good luck. And FYI..I like and enjoy my attitude

    First off, grow some thick skin. Second, I could care less where in the USA that you are from. That means squat when it comes to your failure to register for the Selective Service.

    For one, I find it hard to believe that you have never heard of this being that besides MTV there are plently of other areas of news that tell you about the Selective Service.

    I could care less that you have been to 2 LE academies. Are you in LE then? If so, on every LE application it asks for your selective service number, being that you are a male, unless you had a secretive operation?

    Anyway, you keep going back to you signing this contract for MP. Who cares. MEPS didn't allow you to continue on in to the Military and obviously it didn't mean that much to you if you didn't fix your "disease" or attempt to enlist again in the past 10yrs.

    Are you screwed getting a job with the Govt. Probably. Why? Well two things, failure to register with the SS as a male and most likely your attitude.

    Either way, good luck.
    You CLEARLY dont know what you your talking about, ive been an LEO since 2002 an NO they never asked for my Sel Ser#, When I was DQ in 98 I went another route, payed for college on my own and got a local Govt job right after that. "fix your disease" wow, you need to look at your own attitude.
