    Personal information given during enlistment - Spanish American War


      My grandfather died in the VA Hospital in 1934. On his death certificate his father is named and the informant on the death certificate is listed as "Hospital Records". Would my grandfather have given the military his father's name when he enlisted in the Army for the Spanish American War in 1896? Or would he have given them that information when he became a patient at the hospital?
