Albert was one of the 24 million American men born between 1873 and 1900 who registered for the draft in 1917 and 1918. Albert registered in Manlius on June 5, 1917. His registration card, shown here, provides his signature and confirms his birth place and date. On a more personal note, we can also see that he was single and employed by M. S.
