In Error, Md. Men Get Selective Service Letters

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Va. (AP/WBOC) - The independent federal agency that manages draft registration says it accidentally sent letters to thousands of men in Maryland telling them they need to register, even though they've already done so.

The Selective Service System said in a message posted on its website  that the letters were the result of an error in its computer processing system.

The problem notices will have the recipient's first and last names transposed, and can be disregarded by anyone who is already registered with Selective Service. The letters are dated April 23, 2014, and likely went to thousands of male Marylanders between the ages of 18 and 25.

Men have to register with the agency in case a military draft is instituted.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
