All my uncles served. One grandfather was a seabee in WWII. And going back to Great Britain and Ireland my great uncles and great great uncles and great grandfather all served. They all had their reasons. Some were drafted, others volunteered. And their service was spread out. My uncles, all being very strong individuals, all went into different branches of the military.
I have my grandfather's naval picture hanging up in my living room.
Anyway, just wanted to say thanks.
