8. My father in law enlisted in WWII as a Marine at age 17

and also served in Korea, as well as doing THREE tours of duty in Vietnam. Doesn't talk about any of it. He's still alive, thank God. I know that many here (including me and his son) would not agree with his politics, but he's walked the walk and deserves to have his opinion as the rest of us do. As my husband said, he's seen active duty in three wars, but doesn't run around stockpiling weapons like all the chicken hawks seem to. Doesn't even keep a gun in the house. And, although he is a republican, he once famously commented that he couldn't stand Rush Limbaugh.
