Draft registration card for Roger D. Peterson of Condor (Montgomery county), North Carolina was updated to reflect that he had been discharged.

Note that his telephone number shows that the exchange was "Condor" (the town's name) and "15" being the home phone.  With today's Condor population exceeding 3,000 families, that number would be quite different.

Roger died on 2 August 1993 in Pinehurst (Moore), NC, less than 5 miles outside the Fort Bragg perimeter and only 20 miles from his hometown of Condor.

Burial details are unknown.
