Not sure about Wildcat, but Jay was 21 when he first became The Flash (remember he was in college at the time) and I think Alan is a few years older than Jay. Recruitment (or the draft at least) applied to men of at least 18 or 19 years of age. Not sure why none of them enlisted. I suppose you could ask the same of any of the male JSA members.

One of the reasons (given years later) that the JSA didn't walk into Germany and stop Hitler was that (in the DCU at least) he had the Spear of Destiny and it corrupted any superheroes who went overseas.
