WWII Draft Registration Cards

WWII Draft Registration Cards

TOPIC

Draft registration cards compiled from multiple registrations beginning in 1940, for men 18 to 45 years old.

Description

    The first draft registration under the 1940 Selective Training and Service Act required all males ages 21-36 to register on October 16, 1940, to serve in what would ultimately be WWII. Between 1941 and 1943, there were six more registrations, and the ages changed to 18-44. One exception is the Fourth Registration, or "Old Man's Draft," also on Fold3. Registration cards show name, residence, age, place of birth, employer, physical characteristics, and other information.
