Hi Craig,

Did you find them on ( free)  familysearch.org ?     Well they may had been done in 1917 to 1918, one of my grand uncles-who was born in Germany, raised in Minnesota & happened to be working in South Dakota.  They knew he was supposed to be in MN-where he was to file at post office in Lake City, MN & file petition of naturalization- so it is possible he had two-if he filed where he was at & where his family lived.  Hopefully a 1900,1905, 1910 census etc may clarify situation- single men kinda turns up missing in them working away & out of state.   My grand uncle was the only one to work in South Dakota that short window of time-and was much amazement for me to had found it & it was the WWI card !   Maybe someone else here may have other info of help for you on this.

Is there anybody on the list who is knowledgeable about the 1917 military
draft in the United States, or knows where else I could turn for further

I've got a situation where I've got two different draft cards that may or
may not actually be for the same person -- there are some discrepancies,
none of which are definitive enough to rule out a connection, but there's
also a major flag which rules a connection *in* rather strongly -- and I
need to know whether there are any other records I can access which would
help me solve the dilemma.
