World War II Draft Cards

World War II Draft Cards are available to the public for those men born between 28 April 1877 and 16 February 1897. While they were not young men during the WWII era, they were still required to register. These cards are available from the regional branches of the National Archives or are on microfilm through a local Family History Center.

There is more about the cards in an article we posted on our site (including sample images):

Draft cards for men born after Feb 1897 are available if the registrant is deceased. There is an article on obtaining these records from Selective Service on our site along with sample scans of the cards.

Interesting records from an interesting time in our nation's history.
