I just became aware that a Military Census was taken in 1917. Has anyone
heard anything about this and where would the records be held? It seems each
state took their own census.
I have not seen a Military Census for Connecticut, but I do have a three-volume
set of books entitled, "Service Records, Connecticut, Men and Women in the
Armed Forces of the United States During World War 1917-1920," published by the
Adjutant General of the State (there is no date of publication shown). I would
guess that other states published similar books.

Along with a brief military record, the roster shows the person's name, race,
serial number, and address at time of enlistment. I would be glad to do
lookups if anyone is interested.
