Looking Back: DeKalb County Draftees Leave Sycamore for Training

From the April 27, 2016 MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1941, 75 years ago.

" A large crowd of parents, sweethearts, wives and well-wishers estimated at more than 300, were present to see sixty-eight DeKalb county young men-- twelve from Sycamore--  the county's selective service draft contingent for April, leave on the Chicago and Great Western special coach this morning at 7:15 o'clock."
