And the other'in my extended family who have been soldiers: Dad's father--army WWI. Mom's brother--army WWII. My brother's son--army medic in Iraq for several tours. Ed's brother--Navy in the 1980s. Ed's other brother's son--Airforce cargo handler between states and Afghanistan and Iraq theaters.
And Ed was in the Marine Corp in the 1976-81.
A good number of my cousins and Ed's cousins as well.
