From his WWII Draft Registration which he filed on the 21st of January 1944 in Berrien Co. Michigan, we learn that he is 5 feet 10 inches in height and weighs about 145 pounds. He has a light complexion with brown hair & hazel eyes. His mother died when he was 6 years old and his Dad remarried. His family lived in Berrien Co. Michigan and Coffee Co TN. He enlisted on the 5th of April 1944. I have his Serial # and I plan on ordering his military records.
