Military Monday: "The Great War": Military Registration Cards from Camp Dodge, Polk County, Iowa (Albert T HANLON)

During a visit to the Gold Star Museum at Camp Dodge, Polk County, Iowa, I found their library had thousands of registration cards from World War I.  I scanned about 30 of them for names in my family tree (not necessarily related).  I have not found these in any database, anywhere.

So, for about the next year, I will be presenting them here.

This card is for Albert T Hanlon who resided at 312 - 7th Street, Des Moines, Polk County, Iowa.
He enlisted in the National Guard the 14th of July 1917.  He was born in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

There is a FindAGrave page for an Albert Thomas Hanlon, that may be this Albert Hanlon.
