  1. I remember my dad had saved souvenirs from WWII. I’m sure those memories were mixed with many emotions.

    • My dad had a boomerang from Australia when his ship was there during WWII on its way to Guadalcanal . Maybe he had other souvenirs , too . He was very sentimental about the boomerang .
