OK - So I went over to my grandmas house and my mom and aunts were going through all the stuff in the basement.

My mom found a small canvas bag of uniforms.

Now my grandma gave me my grandpas dress blues for Christmas. (he was in the Navy during WWII as an aircraft machinist in Hawaii). In this bag had his hat, 3 blue shirts (2 look 'standard' with out any ornamentation, and one has stars and strips on the flap thing in the back)., 2 blue pants, 3 white shirts, and 4 white pants.

The problem is the white items are pretty badly mildewed. There are rust brown colored stains all over them. Am I screwed - or can we bleach the stains out.

Take them to a Dry Cleaner. They should be able to advise the safest way to launder/clean them.

That is definitely a job for a professional, and absolutely DO NOT use bleach on them.
