Well, I don't know about any of my family serving during wars (because of age, or lack thereof), but let's see here... My uncle Mike was in the Army, he was a Tanker in Germany for awhile, my Uncle Jeff was, but got kicked out cuz he's a pothead-bum type. I think that's it for Army. My brother and one of my cousins are in the Navy, my dad was in the Air Force, and my Uncle Ray was in the Marines. So that's all 4. Wow.

Only three members of my extended family have been in the US Army: My grandfather, on my fathers side, who was a Military Policeman in WWI, My Grand father, on my moms side, who was a infantryman in WWII. and my Uncle on my fathers side, who started in the Tank Corps in WWII (untill he lost his tank on the Fort Sill Training grounds-go figure) transfered to medical corps, and retired from the USA as a full colonel.

As for me and my father...we went AF.

My Grandpa was in the Army during the Korean War, what was ultimately the deciding factor whether I joined the Marines or the Army.
