So this week, around the world, people give thanks to the many veterans who have put their lives on the line to ensure freedom for others....we should all say thank you...
I am proud to say that my family has had many veterans. The first one I know about is my great-great grandfather on my paternal side. His name was Daniel Scoville and he served during The Spanish-American War, in the Navy.
My great-grandfather (maternal), Francois Martin, served during World War I
My Pépé, Joseph LaChappelle, served during World War II, although I have no pictures.
My father served in the 25th Infantry during the Vietnam War
My uncle made a career in the Marines..he retired awhile back...
My brother also served. He was in the Army during The Persian Gulf, but he was never sent to combat.
