Greetings WWIIF community, and thank you for this invaluable resource. I'm writing a piece of historical fiction in which a young man voluntarily enlists for service in World War II. However, I'm having trouble nailing down what his enlistment experience would have looked like. Any insight you can offer or direct me toward regarding the following questions would be much appreciated: 1. Where were local draft boards located? Were they housed within city halls, schools, post offices, libraries, or other public buildings? Did they occupy their own spaces on Main Streets or elsewhere in town? In my story as it stands currently, the protagonist goes to city hall to enlist, but I'm not sure whether that's an accurate portrayal. 2. What was the experience of enlistment like, especially voluntary enlistment? Would one register, complete physical and other exams, and be inducted all on the same day, or was the process more drawn out? 3. How long after enlistment would a soldier ship out for training? Was it days, weeks, months? Was the timeline fairly consistent for all soldiers or did it vary widely? What circumstances would accelerate or delay that process? Thank you again, and I look forward to hearing from you.
