My dad and uncle served in Desert Storm. My grandpa served in Vietnam. My great grandpa served in Korea. I also have lots of older cousins currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. I may not support the war much, but I do support our troops. God bless them for defending my freedoms. I most likely will never serve when I'm 18 because I have a 10 month old son and I don't want to miss ANY part of him growing up. Also too I got a medical condition that won't allow me to join anyways. I'm working on getting that problem to go away though.
I would have to say that Vets are like the best story tellers on Earth. I can just sit for hours listening to my grandpa tell me Vietnam stories. He's a bit on the graphic side, but he's just being real.
