I picked this up at an antique show last weekend. The fellow mentioned in the discharge enlisted for a four year hitch but was discharged after three.There's a notation that he was not recommended for reenlistment though scoring good to excellent marks for obedience, military efficiency and sobriety. I think I found his resting place on Find-a-Grave where his D.O.B. was listed as 1913 rather than 1912 as shown on the discharge. The grave is located in Huntington , N.Y. where he was born. Could he have been discharged for lying about his age at enlistment as he would have only been 17 in 1930?
