Today I recived a letter from the NPRC informing me that da's medals from when he was in usa army are being replaced and sent to me!!
Da served in the 6th ID, F co., and in 329th TC, Heavy Boat Company as well as in the USA Navy, serving for a time on the USS Shasta AE-6.
This letter was only for his army medals, now I must request his navy medals.
Da was born in James Bay neighberhood of Victoria, BC and playd futbol for the Victoria Warf Rats. He and my grand da, who was from ireland(Grand ma was from Scotland)were "stokers" on the Estavan.
Da latter came to usa and joind USA Army...
In loving memory of James Connor, Maj., USAR 4/4/29-4/4/82
