Re: Any history buff here?

What I have is a part of history that a lot of young people don't know of nor heard as well. These items were given to me by my sister who I visited in October 2016. Two of the four war ration books had who were to be my grandparents and other two has my real dad and his sister. The check which is dated October 17 1899 is from Johnston Saving Bank which is no longer there since 1926 in Iowa City, Iowa. If any one has any questions concerning these items feel free to ask. I will do my best to answer.

Hang onto those items. When my mother died in 2010 my brother was executor of her estate. In his infinite wisdom when He opened the trunk at the top of the stairs which had my war related items (Viet Nam) as well as my fathers from WWII he decided that the ration books and V-mail between my parents were useless and threw them away. I managed to save my stuff and my Dad's patches and decorations but lost all the rest. I do have my Dad's scrapbook from the Civilian Conservation Corp, in which he made Sargeant.

You are right, the young people today have no clue.

Hold on to it. I have a friend that has a letter from Abraham Lincoln which is original. It is in the vault of a bank not far from here. I would imagine it is priceless.

I have a certificate in my dad's name from the Secretary of war after world at II in recognition for the part he played in ending the war. He, and my mom both worked in the plant in Oak Ridge Tenn. where they built the Atomic Bombs that ended the war. Mom worked in the plant and dad was a guard.

My dad served on Governor Reagan's business board in California. The governor Sent dad a signed portrait and a CA license plate that said THANKS. President Carter sent a signed letter. during his campaign, bestowing the rank of honorary Lt Colonel. President Bush Sr. sent my brother a letter regarding his sick son.

I was called to jury duty a couple of times...
