Re: ACTION ITEM: RLCers, please Join your Local Draft Board!
- John, I'm sorry. I can't help you. I live in Houston and only have
the vacancies for the Houston area.
There are two other Libertarian Board Members in the US: One in St.
Louis, the other an RLCer in Connecticut. They can help you with
those two regions.
You're just going to have to take the initiative and do some hunting
around. I suggest you start with your local town hall or post
office. Or, check with the town clerk. Almost positive one of those
three can point you in the right direction.
As I said, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THE SELECTIVE SERVICE WEBSITE!
Do it on your own with the local Commanders.
