In 1940 President Roosevelt signed the first ever military conscription bill during peacetime, requiring men 18 to 35 to register for draft. Although the United States had not yet entered World War II, the threat of the Axis powers loomed across the Atlantic Ocean. After the U.S. entry into the war, the age restriction was expanded to include men 18 to 65. In total, more than 13 million men were enlisted through the Act.
