I just found out on Ancestry that my Grandfather Willie John-otis Pittman was drafted in World War II. This is totally surprising to me. I even found his draft card.
I also found out my great grandfather Thomas Bowens who is the father of my Grandmother Gertrude Bowens Pittman served in the British Army World War I. He was 34 at the time. Wow he actually had papers from England of Wales and his address in England is also listed. Found his draft card on Ancestry too.
Now I’m really nervous and excited to learn even more about my grandfather. Curious to know where my bloodline leads.
