    How many peeps here had family members fight in a major war?

    My Grandfather fought for your freedom on the USS Hornet WW2.

    I am very proud of that fact. When he was put to rest the American Flag covered his coffin.

    Bravest man I ever knew.

    God bless our troops.

    None of my blood, but the significance of this holiday means alot to my wifes family. Lots of Vietnam Vets. We went up to the Ft Indian Town Gap Cemetary this morning to honor the men that made the ultimate sacrifice. 7000 flags were up for the fallen since 2001. Quite impressive.

    My great-grandfather served in WW1, both of my grandfathers fought in WW2.

    Great-grandfather was awarded the Military Medal for his actions on the Western Front in France, which was the third highest honour at the time.
