My Grandfather was a sub Sailor in the Pacific from '41 to '45. Lots of stories about torpedoes bouncing off of Japanese ships, depth charging until the whole dang sub was leaking like a spaghetti strainer...
My father was a sub Sailor during Vietnam... Yeah, it pays to do well on that ASVAB!!!! He spent the war on a Boomer (not the BSG kind, the Polaris kind)...
My wife has a gaggle of relatives that were G.I.'s during Vietnam... Lotta messed up stories from them... Nothing i'd post here...
I respect the hell outta all the men and women serving now... But i don't know if our generation could do what those people did...

My Dad was a Captain in the Navy. My brother was a Navy SEAL during the cold war, but suprisingly can't talk too much about his time in . My father-in-law was a Jarhead during the Vietnam War and was caught by suprise during tet 1968. Two of my brothers are police officers. That is about all for my families service to our great country.

Both my grandfathers served in the U.S. Army in WWII in Europe, as did two of my grandfathers brothers. My other grandfathers brother served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific. I wish I had gotten to meet more of them, and really get to know them better. They were all gone, with the exception of my one mothers uncle before I enlisted in the Army.
