Thanks for starting this thread, Warspite. My father was a World War II vet, was wounded three times while seeing action in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and France--where he was captured--and was a German POW for the last six months of the war. Dad's three brothers were also in the Army during World War II but only the youngest one saw any action and was killed during the Battle of the Bulge. As wings7 posted about his father, I think mine and my uncle are smiling down on us, too. For what it's worth, I served with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam.
Happy Veterans Day everyone!
