These men and many others in my family have served in the US military.
The first is my Uncle Don, WWII Navy pilot.
The second is my Dad, WWII US Army Cavalry. His older brother Frank was. Lt Commande in the US Navy and his little brother, Robert was a Navy pilot.
The last pictured is my grandpa, Carl, he was a WWI Navy pilot complete with leather Snoopy helmet that fascinated me as a kid. He was with the Seabees in WWII and according to my mom and grandma would be picked up in secret in the middle of the night to disappear for weeks at a time.  He would never say where he was or what he did.
Mom’s side was 1st generation but my dad’s side has fought in every war from the Revolutionary War, James Robb to a cousin in the 101st in Desert Storm.
I salute their service and courage.
