    WWII vet discovers he’s not a U.S. citizen

    Ninety-five-year-old Leeland Davidson discovered recently that he's not considered a U.S. citizen, despite living nearly 100 years in the country and serving in the U.S. Navy during WWII.

    Davidson, from Centralia, Washington, told KOMO News that he discovered he wasn't a U.S. citizen when he was turned down for an enhanced driver's license he needed for a trip to Canada to visit relatives.

    "We always figured because he was born to U.S. parents he's automatically a U.S. citizen," said Davidson's daughter, Rose Schoolcraft....

    Re: WWII vet discovers he’s not a U.S. citizen

    Surprising that a guy can go nearly 100 years without realizing he's not a US citizen. I blame his parents before I blame the government...but than again it's much easier to blame the government for all of life's problems so I'm a bit torn.
