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.

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.
Our family on both sides has a strong family history of service.
Currently, our eldest son is on his 19th year in the US Navy, and we have a nephew currently serving in the USAF Reserve.
My husband is retired US Navy, having served 22 years.
My father was a US Marine, retiring after 20 years.
My father-in-law was in the USAF, retiring after 20 years.
I served in the US Navy, as did my brother-in-law, another brother-in-law served in the US Army and one in the USAF.
several uncles and cousins have served.
My maternal grandfather served in WW II,,,
We have had someone in the military since the Revolutionary War.
