Default I Found A Letter...

Addressed to my dad when he was still enlisted. Apparently, as part of getting to go to Officer Candidate School, he had to "explain" his "foreign relations" and therefore provide his dad's naturalization evidence.

There's a bit of 'news' for me here. First, I thought my granddad immigrated in 1910, not 1902. Second, I thought he came through Ellis Island, not Baltimore, Maryland. Third, I didn't know when he became an American citizen. Turns out, February, 1945. I had no clue about what ship he arrived on. Now I'll have to look up the SS Chimmitz (sp). (Actually SS Chemnitz.)
