All of my Grandmother's brothers, and brothers in law were in the Army, As were her cousins. I will have to get some of the stories retold and add them here. I will share my Aunt's wedding photo back in 1944 or 1945. That's my grandmother on the bottom right. They always wore their uniforms in the weddings back then. They are all gone now, but will never be forgotten. Fortunately the only loss that was suffered in a war, was by one of my cousins (2nd cousin) and it was his leg that he lost in Vietnam. He had a wooden leg as a replacement. When I was little, he would take a steak knife and stab the wooden leg to freak out all the kids. I remember one party when he decided to let the kids stab his leg. One of my cousins grabbed the knife and stabbed the OTHER leg. That was the end of stabbing anything. My father and brother were both in a Navy. My father on the USS Wasp, which he was the photographer on the ship when they went to pick up the Gemini 4 Space Capsule.If anyone is interested, I can scan some of those photos. We have hundreds. My brother served on the USS Nimitz. I have so much respect for all the men and women that have served, past and present.
