World War II – Selective Service Act

Angela Gallo welcomed several sons home to Brooklyn after serving in World War II.

After the U.S. entered WWII a new selective service act required that all men between ages 18 and 65 register for the draft. Between November 1940 and October 1946, over 10 million American men were registered.
