Are You Interested in Serving Your Community - Your Nation?
Even though there is no draft today, there is a need to be ready in case a National emergency requires Selective Service to provide additional personnel to augment our volunteer U.S Forces.
Selective Service is looking for men and women who would be willing to serve as members of local boards. Local Board Members are volunteers nominated by the Governor and appointed by the President of the United States. They play an important community role closely connected with our Nation’s defense. Potential members must be citizens, at least 18 years old, not employed in any law enforcement job, not an active or retired member of the Armed Forces and not have been convicted of any criminal offense. Men must also be in compliance with the registration requirement of the Selective Service.
If you are interested in serving and meet the requirements above, please submit your information on our website at https://www.sss.gov/Volunteers/Request-Info
To furnish manpower to the Defense Department during a national emergency, to manage alternative service for men classified as conscientious objectors, and to register, with only a few exceptions, all male U.S. citizens and male immigrants residing in the United States who are ages 18 through 25
A citizen can be a volunteer to be a Local Board Member for the Selective Service System (SSS). SSS Local Board Members are part of a group of citizen volunteers whose mission, upon a draft, will be to decide who among the registrants in their community will receive deferments, postponements, or exemptions from military service based on the individual registrant's circumstances and beliefs. There are currently Local Board positions open for residents of Walworth, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Crawford, Juneau, Dunn, Brown, Chippewa, Eau Claire, Jackson, marquette, Winnebago, Wood, and Adams Counties. There will be future opportunities throughout the rest of Wisconsin as well.
