Attention all 18-year old guys, and those about to turn 18! We're here to remind you that registering with the Selective Service System is a requirement within one month of your 18th birthday. It's the law, and keeps you eligible for student loans, job training, government jobs, and driver's licenses in most states. You can do it on online or on your smart phone at www.sss.gov. You can register at the Post Office, and even submit your registration earlier so that you're automatically set on your birthday.
