5-28-18 Question of the Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

Do you currently have a family member who is serving in any branch of the armed services?
Have you had family members in the past who have served in any branch of the armed services?
Have you ever served in any branch of the armed services?

Thank you to all of the many, many people who have served past, present and future in all branches of the armed services to keep our United States of America a free and safe country!

My DFIL was in the Navy during WWII. I have a nephew who was in the Marines and another nephew who is currently in the Navy. Neither DH or myself have ever served. DH barely missed being drafted for Vietnam.

No current members of the family are serving, but my DDad was in the Air Force. He left when I was three years old, but I remember a little bit of the base where he was last stationed.

My FIL served in the Army in WWII. One of my nephews was a Marine and one served in the Army.
I have several uncles, both on my mother's side and my father's side who served in the Navy.

We don't have anyone serving in the military. I was never in the military and am the first generation of my family that did not serve.

My father was in the Army after he got out of college. He was stationed in Ohio. We sometimes here stories about that time. None of us kids ever went into the military.

My oldest son, enlisted in the Air Force during college, he is stationed in Los Angles.

Thank you for my Freedom!

Not currently, except my ex's stepson. He's currently in the Marines but told me this weekend he is attempting a transfer to the Army. It's convoluted, but he has better opportunities in the Army to do what he wants to (fly helicopters). He's been in for 10 years.
Formerly: My oldest stepbrother was in the Airforce, my father was in the Army during the early, early years of Vietnam (actually in Laos, even though 'we' weren't officially there), his younger brother was in the Airforce at the same time, and their youngest brother was in the Navy (yep - same time - my grandmother had 3 sons deployed to parts unknown at the same time - poor woman). Paternal Grandfather was in the Army during WWII, and my step-grandfather was in Navy at the same time. My Maternal grandfather was not able to enlist due to having had polio.

My grandpa and great uncles served during WWII. We lost my great uncle when his ship was hit and went down. He was never recovered. I have uncles that served during Vietnam and an uncle who was career Navy for 20+ years. My brother was career Air Force and retired after 20+ years. He served during the first Gulf War and actually retired right before 9/11.

None currently, but my dad served in the Army, stateside during the Korean era, my brother is a peacetime Navy veteran, and my uncle saw extensive battle action for the Army in Vietnam.

Thanks to all of our military personnel, past and present.
