Mary:
A lot of men were exempted from the draft in WWII...if they were farmers, only sons, had many dependents, visual defects, etc. You might check with the local draft board records in the county in which he WOULD have registered....those old records might be stored in a State archive or local historical library, etc.
In your case, the man might have been given a compassionate or temporary exemption....
