2. Thank you for posting this family history.

You certainly can be proud, since members of your family served honorably. It could not have been easy for them, trying to fit in when others were treated more warmly. When people such as Pence casually state to the graduates at West Point that they will more than likely serve in wars, it saddens me. So casual about young lives being tossed on the trash heap of WARS. The only people who benefit are the weapons manufacturers and their investors. Service people who are trying to recover from the senseless wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are still fighting to get help for their injuries and PTSD. So, why not jump into another death trap? After all the rich do not risk losing their loved ones who stay home with "bone spurs" and other maladies.
