Hello, If you would like me to send this to you in bigger print, send me an email with O'Donnell in the subject line and I will copy this and send it to you in bigger font. Hope this info helps.

If there are any enlistment/draft records for your relatives that were born in the 1870-1890's and possibly early 1900-1905ihs, they were probably part of what is know as the "Old Man's Draft" and didn't serve in WWII but could have in WWI.

I did find a WWII registration card for a Denis O'Donnell born February 13, 1878 in Donegal, IRE. Date on it was 1942

I checked the NARA online site and couldn't find any records for James, Michael or John O'Donnell but that doesn't mean that they weren't drafted or enlisted....just that they are not on that site.

On Ancestry, I found these but have no way of knowing whether they are the men you are looking for info on. You'll have to decide maybe by middle initial and county where they enlisted and marital status.
