My father was almost 27 years old when Pearl Harbor was attacked. He was married and had one child. I cannot locate him in the draft registration cards for WWII. Could he have been exempt from registration because he was driving a bread truck that supplied the Fort Ord [California] Army base? Were men left out of the draft registration if they were classified 4F? Wouldn't all young men be required to register regardless of physical or employment status? Why can't I find my father in the WWII draft registration?If you have an answer to John's mystery, please send him an email in care of firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
