22. Here's Some Information On the Selective Service Site

College Deferments:

Under current draft law, a college student can have his induction postponed only until the end of the current semester. A senior can be postponed until the end of the academic year.


The registrant is guaranteed a personal appearance before the board if he wanted to appeal his classification. This was not part of the appeals process prior to now.

Paternity/Marital Deferments:

Both of these were revoked by Executive Order 11527, signed on 4-23-70
by President Richard M. Nixon

In other words folks there isn't a lot of wiggle room for anybody. Unless Congress changes the rules. And we all know that won't happen.

Wink, wink, nudge,nudge, know what I mean.
