My father was in the Air Corps, WWll. My great uncle was Patton's driver. I'm a direct descendant of U. S. Grant. My ex was an army officer. My oldest son is still in the Air Force, with Red Horse, a specialized forward deployment unit. He's been deployed more times than I remember. My second son was an air traffic controller for the Air Force, he's now a disabled vet. My daughter-in-law just got out of the Air Force a year ago. She is going to college full time and works two jobs, one is for the VA. She is still in the reserves. When my sons went for their secret clearance they were told they were from the 'military' family, having had six family members with top secret clearance in only a few generations, (myself included). I teach on a military post. The military is a part of our life and I couldn't be prouder of our men and women and the ones who support them, from their family members to the civilians around them. Last week three men were in line ahead of a soldier at a local supermarket, even though he protested they didn't have to, they paid for his basket of food. Yesterday, the town gave a wounded warrier a brand new house, free.
God Bless our military and those who support them. Those gone will never be forgotten.
