but I remember all their stories and the wisdom they shared with me. I look foward to sharing these things with my own children some day.

Well said Hi speed!!!!! I have found both things occuring in my own family.

My great, great gandfather was a confederate soldier in the civil war. I also have great grandfathers that served that served in the Army in WWI, WWII. I know little about them, but I'm trying very hard to change that.

My grandfather served 3 tours in Korea and 3 tours in Vietnam.

My father served in the army in Germany, during the build-up there, at end of the Vietnam war.

My father; by adoption served in the 1st gulf war, not long before he retired.

I'm very proud of my military heritage. And although I never originally planned to join the military, the creator had different ideas for my. After serving my country for 6 years I'm thankful for the experience and knowledge I gained.
