    Maternal Uncle- Sidney Lewandosky, U.S. Army, killed in the Philippines. Buried in Hawaii. (before I was born)

    R.I.P. If you can sense my thought to you: There are still a few left of us who remember hearing about you.

    My father was a proud WWII veteran. Died in 2010 at age 88.

    Several cousins served in Vietnam and all came back.
    Two brothers were in Army in Germany in early 70s.

    My dad was a Hospital Corpsman on a LST in the Pacific in WWII. Once he had to perform an appendectomy while instructions were radioed to him from a doctor on another ship. He died in 1992; I miss him dearly.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    Still asking why.
