Stephen Wisthoff No, it was basically compulsory service to the German military. He went AWOL in order to leave with his family to America. We have a neat picture which is a large wall picture of his face placed in the artistic rendering of three different military officials. I believe this was distributed to the soldiers if they wanted to receive one. He is on horseback with sword and German helmet of the era and then in two other poses. My brother has the picture. It's kind of neat. I don't know anything more about his service in the military.
