Welcome to Seattle Draft and Military Counseling Center!

The purpose of the Seattle Draft and Military Counseling Center is to provide accurate, comprehensive, and objective information about Selective Service, military law, military regulations, and administrative procedures to anyone in need of this service, and to assist them in applying this information to their own situation and goals.

SDMCC also supports conscientious objectors and promotes individual and collective resistance to war and preparations for war. The information shared with a counselor is privileged communication and will not be released to anyone without permission of the counselee.

About SDMCC

Seattle Draft was formed in 1969, then serving as a draft counseling organization during the Vietnam War. In 1998, we joined the GI Rights Hotline Network, and have focused our resources on supporting GI's and their families ever since. Archives from our early years can be viewed online courtesy of the University of Washington.

Get Involved

SDMCC is an all volunteer organization based in Seattle, WA. We're always looking for more people to help support soldiers and their families by providing them with information and resources, educate young people about selective service, reaching out to service members who are in the delayed entry program, doing outreach work for the GI Rights Hotline, or making financial or in-kind contributions.
