Rosslyn, VA: Today, longtime farmer, rancher, and real estate professional, John W. Singletary, was sworn in as the Colorado State Director for the Selective Service System (SSS) by Joel C. Spangenberg, the Acting Director of Selective Service. Mr. Singletary was recommended for this leadership position by Colorado Governor Jared Polis and appointed by Acting Director Spangenberg. Today’s ceremony was held at the Colorado National Guard’s Joint Force Headquarters.

SSS Acting Director Spangenberg said, “John Singletary is a respected community member, leader, and businessman in Colorado, and we are fortunate to have him join our team as our Colorado State Director. He brings with him a great passion for service and a desire to make a positive difference. He will collaborate closely with Colorado’s leaders to help strengthen SSS’s readiness capabilities statewide.”

“I welcome the opportunity to serve our nation in this capacity. This new position will enable me to advance the Selective Service System’s important readiness mission here in Colorado in support of America’s all-volunteer military and national security interests,” Mr. Singletary said.

Mr. Singletary is a lifelong resident of Colorado, working the land as a farmer and rancher for more than 35 years, contributing to the growth of the State’s economy and agriculture industry.

They have two grown children and five grandchildren.




Federal law requires all male citizens, as well as male non-citizens residing in the U.S., to register with Selective Service System within 30 days of their 18th birthday. At 26, a man becomes too old to register. Those who do not comply are ineligible for numerous benefits, including state-level student financial aid, federal job training and employment, and U.S. citizenship for male immigrants. The Selective Service System seeks volunteers to serve on its local boards and as State Resource Volunteers. Interested citizen-volunteers can apply at
