This is interesting, I think.
I have come across my grandfather; Sherman Smith's draft notice, etc. and
although two of his brothers - Bill and Lewis - did serve in
France............Sherman was entitled to an exemption and the papers said
because he was the sole support of a wife and four children.
Bill was newly married to Mae Cockrum and she supposedly was pregnant with
their first child. Lewis however was single.
I wonder how; particularly with the way the military was set up in WWII,
Vietnam and now all the Middle East conflicts - how in the world that some
men were given that exemption during WWI?
Just a thought?
