Charley F. Miller's WWI Draft Registration Card

I recently found my Great-Grandfather's WWI Draft Registration Card on Ancestry.com. I have saved the digital image from the website, and am sharing it with you here, as part of my effort to show you the stepping stones along the way in my research.  I would like to be able to do an Ancestral Spotlight on Charley Miller in the near future and am in the process of gathering documents.

Charles Francis Miller registered for the WWI Draft on 5 June 1917 in Akan Township, Richland County, Wisconsin. He is listed as having been born a natural born citizen on 10 Aug 1891 in Crawford County, Wisconsin, making him 25 years old.  At the time of the draft, he resided at R.F.D. (Rural Free Delivery) #2, in Boaz, Wisconsin. At the time of the draft, he was employed as a farmer in Akan, Richland, Wisconsin. He was married with a wife (Ruby M. Dyer) and one child (Verlin C. Miller). The Registrar's Report lists him as a tall man of medium build with brown eyes and dark brown hair, with no missing appendages. :)
