Description: When the U.S. entered World War II in 1941, seventeen-year-old Art Bleimeyer was more concerned about enrolling at Rice Institute than serving in the Army because the minimum draft age was twenty-one. By the time he finished his first year of college, however, all that had changed. The draft age was lowered to eighteen, and Mr. Bleimeyer was off to Fort Sam Houston by June 1943. Nonetheless, he was looking forward to going into the service. He recalls that he felt it was something every able-bodied person needed to do.
