In this photo taken on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, Harold Weaver sits behind his wife, Martha, in their Nickleville, Pa, home. Martha holds a letter from the Selective Service for her late father, Fred Minnick, requiring him to register for the nation's military draft. The letter arrived too late for Minnick, who was born in 1894 and died on April 20, 1992.
