What Selective Service didn't tell you, and you forgot to ask

Back to School Note for Parents

If your child is in high school as of this September you either have already or will soon receive a message from the school regarding the No Child Left Behind Act. A fortunate feature of this legislation allows parents and students the right to deny releasing their name, address, phone number to military recruiters. If you have not seen this form or it somehow got overlooked, contact your high school as soon as possible. If you do not sign this opt out form you and your child are likely to get a never ending barrage of letters, calls and home visits from the recruiters with promises of fame, fortune and glory and little truth about the war(s).
