      thanks CAPER ....yeah, so Glad I have these. My Brothers got his Medals, but what can I do. I guess things like that should go to the *boys*.

      This hat looks like the one they are wearing in the pic I posted here:

      Very nice I've asked a few people in our family about both my grandfathers stuff except for one medal all gone and no one knows where it is sadly.

      Again, thanks for sharing. The Royal Canadian Legion and the American Legion were both formed by veterans of WWI. As a member of the American Legion who takes pride in the fact that I have family members who wore the uniforms of Canada and the U.S. in both world wars, it warm my heart to know that you honor your father's service.

      Awww -- That is Sad. Sorry to hear that. Wonder if anything was ever signed with their *Full* names ----- and HEY ----- could end up in internet world or Ebay.

      Sometimes you hear stories of people wanting to return things back to the families

      My mom was born in Canada. I grew up in Watertown and Buffalo.
      I wonder if I can get my citizenship because of that

      This is really sweet Rose

      My step-dad, a Japanese-American, was "interned" (the word the government likes to use) in a "camp" (another government-preferred word) right after Pearl Harbor simply because of his Japanese ancestry. The only way for him to get out of that "camp" was to join the U.S. military, which he and thousands of other young Japanese-American "interned" men did. My step-dad served his country with honor and distinction, while his family, and his people, were unjustly imprisoned. My step-dad never quite forgave the government for what they did. He only talked about it once with me, a little over a year before he passed away at the age of 93, enough for me to understand that he'd carried that bitterness for all those years.

      A just bitterness too Blade. In Australia we had many indigenous who served and it wasn't until the 1960s that they were even recognised as Australians and given the vote. Xenophobic times, and we should have learnt better, clearly haven't.

      Rose - a great post and has produced great comments too.
