If you may recall, a month or so ago I got a letter from the French embassy saying that I am required to go to Boston and register for the French draft. My parents sent a letter (signed by me), saying that I will not attend. That I live in this country, and have never collected a penny of socialist benefits nor have I reaped any benefits of French citizenship.
I just got a letter saying "THe French government attests that I am all set and registered for the draft until I am 25 years of age".
Do they read letters? We wrote it in French. I think they assumed that since they got an envelope addressed from me, that I said yes I accept.
