Do FTM's have to register with the Selective Service? YES!
[spacing]I was asked a very interesting question, which was, "Do FTMs have to register with the Selective Service?"
[spacing]I never thought of it, but it is a great question. I called the Selective Service at (847) 688-6888 and found out that Female to Male transsexuals are exempt from registering with the Selective Service, but they need the Selective Service to give them a letter stating so.
[spacing]This question has come up before, and the Selective Service will type up this letter saying plainly that you are exempt from registering, but will not say why.
[spacing]This letter is important if an FTM applies for educational loans and a few other things where that question is asked, "Did you register for the draft?" They have to have that letter, or face the possibility of getting into serious trouble.
[spacing]Since there are a lot of FTM's who are between the ages of 18 and 26, then this is important information for them to have, whether there is a draft or not. This has to get out to all the young men in our community. Spread the word.
[spacing]The Selective Service is prepared for this, so call them if you have any questions. Each young FTM must have this letter in their files.
