Oliver Finnestad - World War 1 draft registration

On June 5, 1917, my great grandfather Oliver registered for the draft. He claimed an exemption because he was married and had 4 children (Burdette, Kenneth, Harland and Oliver Jr) at the time of his registration.

The United States had entered the war just two months prior to this document.
