71. Beg to differ
The requirement to register for the draft was never ended. All males are required to register for the draft.

Men who do not register could be prosecuted and, if convicted, fined up to $250,000 and/or serve up to five years in prison. In addition, men who fail to register with Selective Service before turning age 26, even if not prosecuted, will become ineligible for: source http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/defenseandsecurity/a/draf...
