Fred Minnick's Draft Notice Arrives 102 Years After He Turned 18

Fred Minnick's draft notice arrived Saturday in Pennsylvania, 102 years after he turned 18, his daughter said.

Martha Weaver, now in her 80s, told The (Oil City) Derrick that the Selective Service System notice arrived this past weekend in Rockland Township, Venango County, which is about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.

The notice misspelled Minnick's last name "Minick" and warns that failure to register is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment."

Weaver said her father was born on June 12, 1894, which means he would have turned 18 in 1912.

Weaver suspects the confusion was spawned by the incorrect birth date on the form, which lists the birth year as 1994.

Minnick had died by then, on April 20, 1992.
