1917 Johnson County and Area Men Selected for Military Service

The Windsor Review
Windsor, Missouri

Thu, Aug 23, 1917 
Johnson County Missouri Accepted for Military Service 1917

Johnson County Has Called 590 Out of Which to Get Her Quota of 177 Men.

SECOND CALL IS FOR 200 Out of the 390 Johnson county boys brought before the local exemption board, 121 have been recommended to the district board as fit for service. This number does not include any who have made affidavit for exemption, but only those who have successfully passed the physical examination and who have not made affidavits, says the Warrensburg Star-Journal. 

The local board has notified 200 more boys on the draft list to appear before the exemption board for examination. This will bring, the total number called before the board to 590. The examinations for these last 200 will be divided into two days. 4 The first 100 will appear Thursday, August August 23, and the remaining 100 on Friday, August 24. This does not mean that all of these additional 200 boys will be called for service in the first draft if they successfully successfully pass the examination. But in case all or most of the exemptions now in are. accepted, then as many of the 200 as will be required to bring the quota to 177 men will be taken.

The list of those certified to the district board as fit for service follows follows :
