The selective service system is US Government’s independent agency that looks after the information on those people who are potentially subject to the military conscription. A selective service system letter is one that is written by a government department seeking to confirm the citizenship of a person who has completed 18 years of age. Below given is a sample of selective service system letter for easy reference.

Sample Selective Service System Letter:

The Registrant
New York

2nd June 2014

Sub: selective service system letter

Dear Sir,

This is to bring to your notice that, as you have completed your 18 years of age on 11st May 2014, so as a rule under United States Law, you need to get yourself registered under the Selective Service System of the country.

As you know selective service system maintains the data of all male U.S. citizens and male immigrant non-citizens between the ages of 18 and 25. It is absolutely essential that every male above this age has to register with the selective service system to authenticate citizenship in the United States. Failure to register yourself under this may also lead to cancellation of your United States citizenship and consider you as a foreigner.

As we already have a copy of your birth certificate stating that you were born in New York on May 11th 1996 at New York State Hospital, which clearly shows that you have completed your 18years of your age on this 11th of May 2014.

Please consider this letter as a reminder to register yourself with the Selective Service System. Look forward to your registration by June 10th 2014, else you should be prepared for consequences that may be severe.
