I can trace military service in my family all the way back to the revolutionary war.

My Dad was there on D Day. He was shot a total of 3 different times. No lasting effects and will turn 90 this year. Of course he was part of the British Contingent.

on my dad's side it would've been my great great great grandfather that fought in the civil war on the union side. my great grandfather caught the tail end of WWI & served as a marine in WWII, mostly shuffling papers since he was in his 40's. my grandfather also was in WWII & the marines, he was in the thick of it. lucky to come home really.

in the direct line on my mom's side there aren't any vets. during the wars they took care of the homefront & grew the food that fed those left state-side

Bob! I'm with Creeker! I am thoroughly impressed with your Family Photos! I looked at all 30 of them.

I grinned, when I saw that your Uncle Frank was an SK. I was an AK(AW) for 27 years. The pic of the GW (CVN-73), gave me a Flashback. I did a tour on there from '94-'97, then 1 year from '99-'00, and Retired in '01.

PR's were always good folks to know! Ever know a PR named, Jack Horner? He and I were in VP-16 together, in the early '80's.

Again, Bob... Great Pics! Thanks for posting 'em!

Cheers, Shipmate!

My grandfather was Army Air Force Sgt from '43-'45, served in Ardennes and the Rhine. Promoted to S.Sgt in Paris, France in '45. Discharged honourably in California. Army Good Conduct medal and European Theatre medal. Three known pics of him (Born in 1919, signed up at age 24) and WWII dog tags. Famous for the start of local Yellowknife "wild cat cafe" and the "Ingraham Trail/hwy".

I just found out that my family fought in the American Revolution on the Americans side and British. And in the Civil War on the Confederate and Union sides.

Default My Dad

I never could get him to talk about it much but he was in Germany in WWII and was on a machine gun crew of 3. Not sure how long he was in country before being capitured, but he spent about a year in Stalag 7A near Moosburg. He's gone now so I guess he took the details with him.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
