About this collection

This collection consists of almost 79,000 home address report forms, which were sent to local Selective Service boards by Alabamians who enlisted in the armed forces from about 1940 to 1966. These reports provide details such as name, home address, branch of service, rank, service number, date of entry into service, race, gender, and date of birth. The amount of information varies on each card, but most include the subjects' signatures.

In 2019, the Alabama Department of Archives and History conducted a crowdsourced transcription project to collect selected details from the cards, which are now being added to this collection. If you find any errors in the information, please let us know.
