Lieutenant Colonel
Harry C. Kramer

LIEUTENANT COLONEL HARRY C. KRAMER was serving as the adjutant general of the Second Brigade of the New Jersey National Guard when the United States entered World War I. He was detached from his unit to administer the then-new Selective Service Act in New Jersey. This task he accomplished so efficiently that he was sent to Washington DC to become a part of a committee tasked with promulgating new regulations regarding the draft.  He completed his wartime service in Washington serving with the Provost Marshal General's office. Under his command another New Jersey National Guard Officer served, Major Winfield Scott Price, who would go on to become the Mayor of Camden and commander of the New Jersey National Guard in the 1920s and 1930s.
