Prepare in Duplicate Local Board No. 7 Baltimore City Mar 26 1942 1165 Gorsuch Ave Baltimore, Maryland
Order To Report For Induction Bring your classification and registration cards with you! The President of the United States,
To JOSEPH GIRARD COOGAN Order No. 13547
GREETING: Having submitted yourself to a local board composed of your neighbors for the purpose of determining your availability for training and service in the land or naval forces of the United States, you are hereby notified that you have now been selected for training and service therein.
You will, therefore, report to the local board named above at 1165 Gorsuch Ave., Baltimore, Md. at 7:00am on the 13th day of April, 1943.
This local board will furnish transportation to an induction station. You will there be examined, and, if accepted for training and service, you will then be inducted into the land or naval forces. Persons reporting to the induction station in some instances may be rejected for physical or other reasons. It is well to keep this in mind in arranging your affairs, to prevent any undue hardship if you are rejected at the induction station. If you are employed, you should advise your employer of this notice and of the possibility that you may not be accepted at the induction station. Your employer can then be prepared to replace you if you are accepted, or to continue your employment if you are rejected. Willful failure to report promptly to this local board at the hour and on the day named in this notice is a violation of the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940, as amended, and subjects the violator to fines and imprisonment. If you are so far removed from your own local board that reporting in compliance with this order will be a serious hardship for you and you desire to report to a local board in the area of which you are now located, go immediately to that local board and make written request for transfer of your delivery for induction, taking this order with you.
Stauley A. Foster Member or clerk of the local board.
