Andy, all of the men on both my parents' sides of the families served. My Dad's brothers all served in Vietnam. My Dad and my brother both served in the USAF, my brother graduating from the USAFA and then retiring from the Air Force. He flew F-15s and, after serving all over the world, retired at the same AFB that I was born!

I'm so appreciative of all of our Veteran's and active duty service men & women.

I come from a military family. My father is/was a disabled veteran WW2. 

My eldest brother served in the Air Force. Retired. Now does work for FEMA.

My second eldest brother was a top gun fighter pilot in the Navy.  Retired. Now does work for FEMA.

My eldest sister married a Navy man. I do not recall his rank when he retired but it was high. 

My next eldest sister married a Navy serviceman.  He served for 8 years.

My sister above me married a drunk.  HA - just had to add that to the family mix.  One of her daughters married a Navy man who serves to this day ... he is serving in his 12th year.  

I married a police officer and also worked for several police departments.  

We are very blessed not to have lost anyone at war. 

So many top-secret national security "stories" could not be told.

My Dad and most of my Mom's many brothers served in WWII. Unfortunately, my Dad died when I was fairly young and I never got to hear his stories.  I do have all the letters he and my Mom wrote to each other while he was away, though.  My Dad was very careful not to write anything too scary to make my Mom worry. Those letters are definitely one of my most valuable possessions. I'm very proud and grateful for all veterans.

My husband is a Viet Nam Vet.  Spent 14 months in Nam.  He was a mechanic on th guns.  He was in heavy artillery fire at all times.  

His story is as many others.  He suffers from PTSD Extremely.  100% PTSD Disabled.   

He has very little memory of his time there but records and friends document a lot of bad stuff he saw there.  Nothing he will even share.

I am proud to say we have been married since his return. 49 years now.

I love my vet.
