Major Isaac Wright, USAFR Commander AR 2-3 presented at the YouthBuild Memphis Outreach Meeting on July 10, 2020 in Memphis, TN on behalf of Selective Service.

Maj Wright discussed the importance of Selective Service’s federal registration requirement. He explained the many federal and state benefits linked to registration and spoke about how not registering can have a negative impact on a young man’s future. Everyone was very interested in learning about Selective Service and several of the young men registered with Selective Service during the session!
