William Asa Speirs WWI draft registration

This is the World War I draft registration of my great-grandfather, William Asa Speirs.  He was 2 months shy of his 41st birthday at the time that he registered.  This registration shows his height as medium, build as medium with brown eyes and dark brown hair.  His signature is at the bottom left.  Kinda fun!

 William Asa Speirs also was required to register during World War II.  He was 64 years old at that time - probably not the best soldier material - but a possible candidate if things got too bad.  It looks like the cursive writing is in his own hand.  I'm so glad that things did not get bad enough for Papa Speirs to be drafted!!
