My grandfather served in the Army along with my dad. All of my dad's brothers (four of them) served as well. Three in the Army, and one in the Marine Corps. We still tease him about being the lone marine in the family.

We've had men in the service at least back to the War of 1812, including the American Civil War, the Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Gulf War so far. They've served in the Army, Navy, Air Force (back when it was Army Air Corps), Marine Corps, and even the Merchant Marines. Most however were in the Army.
