Arthur was draft exempt during WWll because he worked as a welder At Ford Motor Co in Dearborn, Mich Which was a defense plant.
(info from my dad's cousin Kara ~ thanks )
World War Two was September 1, 1939 – September 2, 1945, Grandpa was already working at the Ford Company in 1936 and still living in Michiagan in 1940. Not sure where he and the family were after the War ended in 1945. Won't know for sure untill the 1950 Federal Census is made public April 1, 2022
Have to think the family made it back to Indiana because son Jimmy went into the Military on May 28, 1951 in Indianapolis, Indiana
