WWII Draft Registration Cards - Check both sides

Tuesday's Tip:   Remember to check the backside of the draft registration card.

Note that the reverse side of the registration card gives a decent physical description of the individual in addition to the date of filing.

U.S. World War II Draft Registration Card
for Andrew Kolbush dated 4/27/1942.

Andrew listed his younger brother, Joseph, as his contact. Joseph soon after enlisted on 23 Jun 1942 at the age of 41 yrs.
It is interesting to me that nowhere on this card is there an indication that Andrew served in WW1 and was disabled.
