The Selective Service System (SSS) is mandatory for all men in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25, regardless of immigration status. Students, people on humanitarian parole, and asylum seekers are all included. The SSS must be registered within 30 days of entering in the country or attaining the age of 18.

Failure to register with the SSS on time may result in the following restrictions:

The Selective Service System, usually known as the draft, is a government organization in charge of preparing a reserve force in case of war or other crises.
The SSS was established prior to World War II to assure an appropriate number of soldiers for mobilization. The SSS has been involved in various wars during its existence, including the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and operations in the Persian Gulf.
Furthermore, the SSS is in charge of conscript selection and deployment to other military branches. In the event of mobilization, the SSS works with other military agencies to guarantee that the armed forces have an adequate number of qualified troops and commanders.
