All the family draft cards discovered and identified for World War I are dated Sept., 12 1918 except Turner’s. Turner, age 26,  registered 15 months earlier in June of 1917. The June 1917 draft was for ages 21-31 which meant Turner. The September 1918 draft was the third round of the WW I draft when the draft was expanded to as young as 18 and as old as 45 which included everyone else on this page.
