John G. Eisler was a member of the New York National Guard, HQ & Service4 Company, 134th Medical Regiment.

He is shown here as having a three-year commitment but the enlistment date of 26 September 1919 actually predates his birth date which is correctly shown in the upper right-hand corner.

'More importantly, the record states that he was activated to regular Army on 27 January 1941 which directly correlates with the National Archives record of his enlistment date

A parachutist volunteer, Pvt Eisler was transferred from the 507th PIR to the 508th PIR on 16 October 1941 as a member of the cadre team.  Pfc Eisler was demobilized on 28 October 1945 and wasted no time in getting hitched to Lilin Moore on 28 December 1945.

But he still had an obligation left on his 8-yer commitment to Uncle Sam so John registered with the draft board  in Fayetteville, NC after he had marred and was living in his wife's home area..  At the time of registration he is listed as Unemployed and a Discharged Serviceman.  His mother-in-law was listed as his most knowledgeable secondary contact.
