He's a Squadron Leader in the RAF (Nato Rank OF3 equivalent to a Captain in the USAF).

How did you get the rank from that (the picture)? Just curious.

I agree with bellhead. Find your local American Legion and get to know them. There is usually one group hosting/coordinating an event at a local cemetery. You need not go along; you will be among friends. I hope that ten years from now you can still fit into that same uniform!

The rings on his cuffs. They have a pattern and different thicknesses. The RAF (and many Commonwealth countries) don't use shoulder insignia on dress uniforms .
