    Did military require ID when registering for draft in WWI?

      Did the military require ID when a person registered for the draft in WWI?  Are those documents in the archives? I am looking for information to verify what my grandfather entered on his WWI draft registration card.  Specifically, his birth place.  Did the military require ID to verify the information on the card?   My grandfather said he was from Lyon, France.  The family doubts his veracity.
