Edward Laurain WWII Draft Registration Card

This was Edward William Laurain's WWII Draft Registration card.  He was my great-grandmother Susan Laurain's brother.  Their parents were Francis Xavier Laurain and Sarah Roe.  Edward Laurain was married to an English woman named Eunice White.

This gives a great description of him at 52 years old.  He had blue eyes, gray hair and "ruddy" skin.  He was 65" tall, meaning he was nearly 5'4" short.

These 2 documents were on 2 separate films and I have compiled them into one image.
