  1. I have several WW2 photos of my father who I believe was a guard at a facility where parachutes were made. Can someone help me identify the uniform he is wearing and the possible location? One of my brother’s thought he recalled the location was either in Canada or a far northern US location. A Canadian genealogist told me that a guard would not necessarily be in the military, but rather a hired civilian. My father once said it was determined he was not qualified from the US military due to a foot deformity, but he wanted to service somewhere in some capacity.

    1. World War II magazine provides a service whereby they try to identify objects from WWII. You might try writing them at Ask World War II, 1919 Gallows Rd., Suite 400, Vienna, VA 22182 or email them at worldwar2@historynet.com. If they can identify an object, it may be featured in one of their monthly issues.
