Our Uncles

In this post card Dad refers to his two brothers and the possibility that they might be drafted. I believe that Charles had a farm deferment and Harry was deferred because of an eye that did not look straight ahead.
On our mothers side her brother Bruce was a conscientious objector and spent part of the war in prison before accepting a position in charge of taking cattle to Europe on a boat. It was kind of a family joke that Dad, who had the farm experience worked in Chicago at the end of the war, and Bruce who was from Chicago helped out with the cows.
