My mother's family came from Norway only about 100 years ago but my father's family arrived in Beverly MA from England in 1660. And some grandfather, uncle, cousin, brother, husband, son or grandson has served in the military every generation since. The list is too long to name everyone so here's the latest two, our grandsons Nick and Damian.
I hate war but we have to admire the young men and women that are willing to step up to the plate and serve their country. No matter how you feel about the war we owe them our respect, support and gratitude.
