Minnesota WW II vet finally gets his passport

A World War II veteran’s “dream trip” to the Canadian Rockies is on after a months-long snafu that made it impossible for the war veteran and longtime U.S. government employee to get back into the country.

Ray Morgan, of Cottage Grove, couldn’t get a passport because he doesn’t have a birth certificate; he was born at home in Iowa and his home county there has no record that he was born.

So the family had to jump through hoops to get the bureaucracy to listen up before the birthday trip went south, KARE 11 says.
