Langlade County WW I Draft Registration Cards
WW I Draft History

World War I started April 6, 1917 and the Selective Service System began a few months later. All men ages 18 to 45 were required to register including non-citizens. Not everyone who registered actually was in the military services.

There were three different registrations (June 5, 1917, June 5, 1918, and September 12, 1918) and a different registration form was used for each one. Looking at microfilmed copies of the forms you can tell that many registrants were illiterate and couldn't spell their own names and birth locations.

You should look at the microfilmed copies for additional information not included here such as: birth city, country of citizenship, physical description, relative names, martial status, and actual signature.

My transcription of these records is not an exact copy. For the purpose of saving space, because of the poor spelling and long answers of registrants I have shorten and abbreviated some things.

On May 28, 2007, a dedication was held for a World War I Monument, located on the east end of the LeRoyer Walkway at the Langlade Memorial Hospital. The monument includes the names of these 41 Langlade County casualties in the Great War.
