World War I
During World War I, three draft registrations were held. The first June 5, 1917 for all men between the ages of 21 and 31. The second on June 5, 1918 for men who attained the age of 21 after June 5, 1917. The third, was held on September 12, 1918 for men age 18 through 45. It is important to note that not all of the men who registered for the draft actually served in the military and that not all men who served in the military registered for the draft.
