1940 Draft – Serial Number Order

Continued from Nov. 4 Saturday Tidbits

“The wheel is spinning in the United States for some 17 million young men. It started when Congress decreed that they should register for possible military service. Then came the registration; then the spin which gave each man in the county a serial number. Tuesday of this week came the whirl that determined the order in which men will be handled by the local draft board for filling Uncle Sam’s quotas.” from ‘The Wheel of Fortune Spins’ in the 31 Oct 1940 issue of the Courier Tribune
