My father and mother were both active duty Air Force. (My dad's reserve now, but mom quit after she had me and my brother.) My brother just enlisted in the Air Force also, as I plan to do also. (In a couple years that is)

my dad is a retired Colonel of the Iranian Air Force.

He is a former expert on Airborne missiles and weapon systems.

I also served in Military.

My grandpa was in the airforce for a while. He almost went to fight in Vietnam, but they didn't send him. He's retired now. That's all the family history I know about that has to do with military. After I get out of college though, I am going to either join the Marines or the Army so that will add some military history to my family. I can't wait. 8)

Well, to be honest I don't know specifically who was in what war or what branch.

For sure I know that:

Great-grandfather - WWII (Army)
Uncle - Vietnam (Army)
Cousin - Current (Army, God bless him!)
Some great ancestor was in some war in Spain or something ( I have a famous last name that any Spanish historian would know!)

Other members of my family have been in the Marines and Army, but I don't know if they ever went to war.
