National Defense Day
If you were born in 1999 and you have the Portuguese citizenship, you have the legal obligation to participate in the National Defense Day.
If you have been residing in the US for more than 6 months you can apply for a waiver of this legal obligation. You need to fill out the application available at http://www.bud.defesa.pt/ddn/dispensa/requerer.html, contact the Consulate to authenticate the signature and obtain a residence certificate (http://www.consulateportugalnewbedford.org /serv_cons/cert_res.php) and send all documentation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are temporarily in the US (less than 6 months) it may be possible to request a postponement (http://www.bud.defesa.pt/ddn/addition.html). You will need to authenticate the signature in the application form and send all the documentation to email@example.com.
