Hello, I have found the June 1917 OKC Draft Card and was SHOCKED to find a card from the VA Master Index for Fred A Johnson. You see, Fred A Johnson was an alias for my greatgrandather, Dave Sanders. It appears he enlisted (according to the Master Index Card, under the name Fred A Johnson and was discharged a week later. I am hoping there might be further info I can find w/ the service number from the master index. Curious to see if the one week service is do to the bogus name and birth information. This was in OKC 1917-1918. Thank you for any help!
I need to clarify, Fred A Johnson is the name he assumed about 1913 in OKC. He lived the remainder of his life as Fred A Johnson. Not a legal name change that we have found.
Hello Ms. Davies,
Thank you for posting your question on the History Hub. The picture is an index card for a military pension file. You may request a copy of the file and possibly other records from the Veteran's Administration at www.va.gov. The index card will be essential to having the correct information for your request.
Best of luck with your research.
