My dad was in the army from '76 to '78. Tried to join in '72 weeks after he turned 18 to be sent to Vietnam, but was turned down due to hypertension.

My paternal grandpa served in the Army from 1950 to 1953, training other soldiers how to wire telephone cables--He asked to be sent to N. Korea on multiple occaisons, but was denied, and instead sent to Alabama.

My maternal grandfather served in the Army from 1939 to 1946, attaining the rank of Staff Sgt., and fought in the Normandy, Northern France and Rhineland campaigns. He earned a Bronze Star (with V device) for valor, an Army Air medal (with V device) and a Good conduct medal, as well as attaining the title of ''expert'' marksman with the M-1 rifle. He was shot in the leg during the Battle of the Bulge by a sniper and very nearly lost the leg, spending over a year in the hospital.

My paternal great grandfather served in World War I.

My mother's maternal uncles fought in World War II, and her great uncle fought in World War I and was gassed apparently. We also have far back Union Civil War vets on my mother's Irish side.

My family military service goes back to the Revolutionary War where my Great-Great-Great Grandfather was killed at the battle of King's Mountain. Later ancestors were in the war of 1812, Civil War, WWI, WW2. I served 4 years in USAF, 8 years Army from 1966-1977. All as Air Police/Military Police. Alas, I had no sons to continue the tradition, but my son-in-law (USAF) just returned from Iraq, and my nephhew (Army) from Afghanistan.

US Coast Guard veteran here, served 1964-1968. Kind of a lone wolf; not too many of us around.

First posting here - It'll take a little time to find my way around.

Today I am proud to say that our Grandson was sworn into the Air Force.  He just turned 18 in Jan. will graduate from HS in May and will leave for Boot Camp Aug.16.  This is all so new to me I'm proud as a peacock yet bawling my eyes out.  God bless you all for your service.  Kiss  Of course Duster was FAC in the Army, but then you all knew that.  Wink

I'd like to welcome home my nephew Chris, who recently returned from his 2nd tour in Iraq.   Upon his return to the States, Chris retired as a US Army SFC.
I'd also like to congratulate my nephew Brian, who is a US Army (Ranger / Special Forces qualified) chaplain (1LT).
