Anyone have family members who served in the military?

Posted by   + Show Post
In honor of Memorial Day I thought we could recognize them for their service to our country.

For those who have family members who served in WWII, this is an online searchable registry of the WWII Memorial. You put in the first and last name and state, and it lists their branch and locations served. Kind of neat.

My Maternal GF was involved in the raid that freed the Jews from Aushwitz in WWII. My Paternal GF was in the Army, my Maternal Uncle is retired Army, my Father was Navy, my brother was Army, DH was AF....just about everyone in my family is prior military.

 I found my father! It said he had been honored by my uncle who I assume submitted his information. I'm going to go in and add a photo.

My father in law was in the army, and my uncle served in Vietnam, both suffered from differing effects from serving during war time. Thank you for remembering them.
