Every discharged soldier received discharge papers that specified what

He also said Russian soldiers taught him to fish and hunt which he
also did. I can’t vouch for the truth of this though one cousin is
said to have some type of certificate attesting to his service in the
Czar’s army. That’s the family lore.
