You asked us not to check. So we guessed and are waiting the baited breath for the answer.

There are only three guesses so far. I was hoping for a little more participation with this one.

Looks like no one else is interested.

Well, jergul, crownroyal and I got it wrong with Mussolini's Brother.

Paramount got it wrong with Putin's Grandfather.

patom got it right with Hitler's Nephew.



The nephew wanted to serve during the war so he wrote a letter to Roosevelt asking for help. FDR turned his letter over to J. Edgar to check out.

The FBI checked it out and found no problems with a good American that wanted to serve so he was allowed to join.
