When he registered for the draft on June 5, 1917 Leone Sebastiano was working as an "oil rubber" at the Victor Talking Machine Company factory in Camden. He made his home at 218 Stevens Street. He was inducted into the United States Army at Camden on October 8, 1917. Initially assigned to Company K, 311th Infantry Regiment, he was transferred to Company H, 30th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division on December 13, 1917.
