Men 18 To 26 Automatically Registered For Selective Service In NDAA Passed By House

By Danielle

The House of Representatives included a measure within this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that would automatically register men aged 18 to 26 for selective service.

“For the first time since 1972, the NDAA bill passed today by the House would automatically register all males age 18-26 for Selective Service in the Military. For the past 52 years, males were required to register on their own, but compliance had reportedly been lagging,” journalist Michael Tracey wrote.

The defense bill passed the House by a vote of 217 to 199.

The legislation now moves to the Senate.

Per Fox News:

While it hasn’t been invoked in over half a century, it’s mandatory for all male U.S. citizens to register for the selective service, also known as the military draft, when they turn 18. Failure to register is classified as a felony and comes with a host of legal challenges.
