NOTE 1 -- REGARDING THE FOLLOWING DRAFT CARD DATABASE : On May 18th, 1917 the Selective Service Act made it possible for the president to request men to serve not only their country but to fight in WWI. The Provost Marshal General Office formulated policy to transmit to our 48 states, and Alaska, Haraii and Puerto Rico, our territories. The 52 territorial offices (states), 155 district boards, 1319 medical advisors boards and 4,648 local boards went to work, registering the men, classifying them, taking needs of the numbers needed, manpower it would deplete in agriculture, family situations, medical problems, how the men would be called and placing them on trains for training centers. There were THREE separate registrations. #A (1st) - June 5, 1917 all men ages 21-31. # B (2nd) June 5, 1918 (those attaining the age of 21 after June 5, 1917). #C (3rd) - Sept 12, 1918 men ages 18-45. There were a total of 5,669 men from Montgomery County that were registered.
Group A -- 2,198 men on June 5, 1917
Group B -- 217 men on June 5, 1918
Group C - 3,254 men registered on Sept 12, 1918

Color Coding goes with the above & each listing of the cards are alphabetical according to the applicant's last name

NOTE2 - many of the men who registered did not serve AND these are NOT military records, but simply a registration of those available for duty. - thanks again to John C - this is totally, TOTALLY AMAZING ~~~~~~!!!!!

NURSES called
Crawfordsville Review Aug 13, 1918

13 women from this county have thus far signed up for the student nurse course, leaving a shortage of 7 delinquents of the county quota. However, the time of the enlistment for the student nurses has been extended to next Saturday August 17. The enlistments thus far received according to Mrs. AB Grover, chairman of the committee for enlisting student nurses, has been mostly among the working class of women. She also states that the training does not confine a girl to a certain length of time to service, but that during the first two months the girls can come home if they are not satisfied. At the end of two months if the instructors do not find the girl suitable to continue the training she will be sent home. The 13 women from this county who have already offered their service to their country are: Mary Copus, Waveland Adah Lehman, City Bessie Beecher, City Vera Clouser, Darlington Aula Clouser, Darlington Cuba Boldt, City Mary C. Boldt, City Alta Stockdale, Wingate Lois Perry, City Charlotte McLoed, City Evelyn Wray, City Mrs. Zelma A. Lee, City Rachel Heath, Waynetown, Ind. Three enlistment days will be held this week besides an all-day enlistment during Saturday and that evening at Bischof’s Store. All young women between the age of 18 to 35 years are requested to drop in and investigate the proposition. Decide to aid your country during trouble and this is the best known manner for women at this time to serve during the present war. If the self-supporting girls can sacrifice their time for their country, the wealthy class should sacrifice their time also.

One of the most impressive funeral services ever held in this city occurred this afternoon at 2:30 when the body of David D. Sloan was lowered to its final resting place in Oak Hill cemetery. The service was in charge of the Byron Cox Post of the AMerican Legion and military honors were paid the World War hero as a final tribute. Capt. Cohee and Dr. George Lewis Mackintosh assisted at the service. David D. Sloan, who had hundreds of friends in Crawfordsville was born Oct 19, 1890 and was killed in action at Sergy, France July 30th, 1918. Just three years ago today the former Crawfordsville boy met his death. Mr. Sloan enlisted in the US Army from Miles City, Montana in oct 1917. He was ordered to Camp Greene at Charlotte, NC. While at the latter camp he was made a member of Co M, 47th Infantry, Fourth DIvision. With this unit he sailed overseas in the latter part of April in 1918. David Sloan met his death at Sergy, France. Going forward with his squad of automatic riflemen the little party came to a bridge across the small river. The bridge was sept by machine gun fire from the German side and in the attempt to cross, Sloan was killed. Mr. Sloan was graduated from the Crawfordsille high school in 1908 and received his AB degree from Wabash College in 1912. The father, due to ill health was unable to come here for the funeral this afternoon. Dr. William Davis, a cousin from St. Louis was present.

Crawfordsville Daily Journal, August, 22, 1918
Mrs. R.I. Williams received this morning a message announcing the death of her brother, David Divine Sloan, in France, Pvt. Sloan was killed in action on July 30, according to the telegram which came from his captain by way of Washington. Although no particulars have as yet been received, recent letters from Pvt. Sloan to his family and friends here led to the belief that he was participating in his first battle when he met his death. Pvt. Sloan crossed with the 47th Infantry of the 4th Division last May. Shortly before he sailed he was granted a short furlough and returned to this city for a visit with many relatives here. "Dudes" as he was familiarly known, was a graduate of the local high school with the class of 1908, and also of Wabash College with the class of 1912. At both schools he was associated with the student publications, serving as assistant business manager for the Wabash. he is remembered as one of the best men aver associated with the college periodical and as a high school senior was chosen by members of his class to give the commencement oration. After his graduation from college, Sloan went west, where he spent the greater part of the time working with his father, John Sloan, on a ranch near Horton, Montana. From Horton, he was sent to the training school at Camp Lewis, Washington. He was also stationed for a short time at Charlotte, N.C., before he was sent abroad last spring. Pvt. Sloan spent his entire boyhood in Crawfordsville and many friends and relatives here were shocked by the news of his death. He is survived by his father, John Sloan, for many years a resident of this city, now living at Horton, Mont., one sister, Mrs. R.I. Williams, of Vernon Court, and several aunts, Mrs. James Harding, Mrs. Eudora Chamberlin, and Mrs. Harry Law, all of this city, and Mrs. Henry Sloan, of Peoria, Ill. - thanks sooo much to Kim H for this one
