If you feel comfortable, post photos of either yourself doing your years of service (if you are a veteran), or a relative.
My great grandfather (Dad's mom's father), fought in WWI. Not sure what rank he reached--little about his service is known. He died rather young, after the war.
Grandpa (Dad's dad), fought during the Korean War, 1948-1952 (I think). Rank of Private.
Grandpa (Mom's dad), fought during WWII, served 1939-1946, rank of Staff Sgt, received Bronze Star with V device, along with other medals.
My father, served 1976-77, private.

Very nice, CITM. If you want some possible information on your ggf, pm me and I can try to look him up on ancestry. They have some WWI records online there. I've been able to find some things about my g uncle who served in WWII, including his enlistment papers and the ship manifest that he came home on.

Great pic Ody, and no matter what anyone says, you DO NOT look anything like Gomer Pyle. :)"The efforts of the government alone will never be enough. In the end the people must choose and the people must help themselves" ~ JFK; from his famous inauguration speech (What Democrats sounded like before today's neo-Liberals hijacked that party)

Kyrgyzstan, 2005.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
—Thomas Paine, Common Sense
