I was not aware, yes a very Happy Birthday! My dad was a Captain in the 29th Infantry Division in World War II. He was in from 1941 to 1945. I still have his coat, ribbons faded, but I shall always keep it and pass it down…….also have a box of his Army patches from the War, his canteen with web belt and his mess kit. He passed away in February of 1988. He was a good man in so many ways.

You should be very proud. That's a fantastic family heirloom.
