Note also that the categories for rejecting draftees for active duty in WW2 ranged from 4A to 4G under the Selective Service System.

In WW1 according to the Office of Medical History for the US Army the designations were " A, fit for full military service; B, accepted for remediable treatment; C, accepted for limited service; D, rejected at mobilization camps; and Vg, rejected by local boards." Draftees rejected for duty were classified D or Vg and not 4F.
