    Draftcard of Christiaan Kloosterman
    Draftcard of Christiaan Kloosterman
    Draftcard of Christiaan Kloosterman, issued by the Lester Milham of the local County of Kalamazoo, Michigan USA on Sept. 12, 1918.
    The age and birthyear are probably wrong (1879 in stead of 1877).

    On May 18, 1917, the Selective Service Act was passed, allowing President Woodrow Wilson to temporarily increase the size of the military forces in the U. S. Local draft boards were established to register, evaluate and induct men. Every physically able man was being considered for service by 1918. The 1918 draft registration cards asked for nearest kin and the the September 12th, 1918 draft cards contain boxes to check for race: White, Negro, Oriental, and Indian citizen or Non-citizen. Not all men who registered for the draft served in the military. Some were not called, others were called up, but soon sent home from training camp due to lack of physical fitness, as related in newspaper articles from the time. Men who had volunteered for military service did not register for the draft. Likewise, a few tried to evade the draft registrations altogether.
