If I found the right Harry VOLZ, here is some information regarding him from the WW I Draft Registration Card.

Harry VOLZ
age 29
residence: Reedsburg, WI
dob: 6 or more likely 16 February 1888
natural born
pob: Freedom, WI
occupation: farmer
employer: Al KLITZKO
place of employment: Reedsburg, WI
no next of kin listed
marital status: single
build: medium
weight: medium
eyes: black
hair: dark
ID marks: none
card dated: June 5 (no year given)
Sauk County, WI

An August VOLZ was listed on the 1920 US Census for Reedsburg, Wisconsin, but can not clearly say this would be Harry's father.
12-14 June 1920
VOLZ, August m w 69 married 1886 PA Mecklenburg/German Mecklenburg Mecklenburg farmer
----, Rosa f w 43 wife Wisconsin Switzerland Switzerland none
----, Frank m w 28 son Wisconsin Wuerttemburg Wisconsin none
