As with "Mrmossyone" I would feel remiss not to mention what my family had done before I was even in grade school. My Grandfather was in TD's Rough Riders. He survived and raised nine sons and six daughters. 7 sons served in WWII. 6 son-in-laws served in WWII. 2 daughter-in-laws were Army nurses. My wife's father was an Army Surgeon with Patton's third army as was her mother who was a nurse in the same outfit. (That's how they met).
An Irony. My Father was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge. He related to me how he and another soldier played dead behind a hedge row for three days in the snow until our side retook the area and he was rescued. He was then sent to a small Army hospital just outside Paris for treatment where my Father-in-law was a Surgeon, and my Mother-in-law was a nurse.
Small world isn't it. He recovered and went all the way to Berlin.
I have pictures of them on our family web site. http://www.cooperhawk.net
Just select the "family" button, then "the war years" and you can scroll through.
They make me feel insignificant!
