My father was an aircraft mechanic in the Army Air Corps (today's Air Force) stationed in New Guinea during WWII. Three of his brothers were serving in different capacities during the war as well. Uncle Jim was a career pilot in the Army. Uncle Paul was a Marine who landed at Normandy. Uncle Joe stayed state side (got in the game towards the tail end of the war as he was younger). My grandfather (their father) served during WWI. They're all gone now but never forgotten. I served from '86 - '92 in the Navy as a Gunners Mate - aka explosives handler for the most part. Happy Veterans Day to all.
