Museum Acquired WWII Uniform, But Once They Looked In The Pockets They Couldn't Accept It.
Schilder was overwhelmed by the news that her dad's uniform had remained preserved all this time.
Dabros made sure that the uniform was delicately placed inside the box, so it could be given to Kulczycki's daughter, who graciously accepted the uniform from Dabros and the museum. Then, she decided to give her dad one of the best surprises of his life.
Kulczycki's daughter sat him down and told her dad, who's 106, about his old military uniform.
Kulczycki was able to try on the uniform, which brought back so many memories. His daughter told Global News that: “We put the jacket and the hat on him and it still kind of fit, it was a little snug fit. He smiled and he seemed to have some recognition of some of the items and photos.”
It was a good thing that the museum was able to give Kulczycki his uniform when they did.
Sadly, the veteran passed away on May 3rd, just a few weeks after he got his uniform back. But at least he had some time to reconnect with his past, and thanks to the museum, his story will continue to go on and on.
Kulczycki's daughter decided to return the uniform back to the museum, so it could be put on display.
She felt that her father would have wanted the story of his military history to be shared with everyone as opposed to having the uniform locked up in some cabinet inside her home. At least now, the donated items will have a special place.
