WWII Draft-- Did one HAVE to be a US Citizen to register?

Postby jamato » Mon Nov 05, 2007 1:59 am

Hi folks:

I noticed a difference between the WWI and WWII draft card registrations. For WWI, it states the applicant's citizenship, or if they have applied, etc. For WWII, there is no citizenship space.

Does anyone know if the WWII draft was only for U.S. citizens? The reason I'm asking is because my GGF filled one out and I know he never naturalized, so it seems weird to me.

Thanks, Jamato

No social security # on his death certificate, but states "Citizen of USA". NARA only had a copy of his alien files-- no naturalization records. My GF says he never became a U.S. citizen though. County and City-level naturalizations show no record also. I assume whomever filled out the death certificate was mistaken.

Death certificates tend to have many errors: my GGF's lists his birth year wrong. I guess this is normal, as it is by its very nature filled out by someone else.
