Daniel was a Canadian citizen who emigrated to Michigan. Near the close of the war, he was injured and returned home. Because he never reported back to his unit, he was considered AWOL, even though the war was over. This was used against him when he later applied for a Veteran's Pension. He was never able to collect it.
