My grandfather served in WWII. He was a bombadeer, not sure if I spelled that right!

Also, my husband was sent to Saudi Arabia during the first war in Iraq, The Persian Gulf War. The towers that he stayed in, Kobar towers, was bombed later, in 1996. Scary, huh!

My great grandfather served in the Civil war.  My great uncle served in the Spanish-American war.  My dad, my father-in-law, and three uncles served in WW II.  My brother served during the Vietnam era (although not in southeast asia) and my husband is a decorated combat veteran from the Vietnam era.  He was a tanker pilot, and did air-to-air refueling in the skies over North Vietnam while under fire from antiaircraft guns and while being chased by Russian MIGs.

To all who serve, thank you.

My father was with the RCAF in WWII - piloted a bomber.  His father, my granddaddy, was in the army for WWI.  He spent a lot of time in the mud in France.

people forget or fail to mention, too often, that if the American Indians had not come up with the un-crackable code the Japenese may have won...we are forever in the debt of these heros.
