Long Military history

I 've been able to to trace my family history on my dad's side. And I found out that it goes all the way back to the civil war. I've had uncles in all wars from WW I , WWII , Korea and Vietiam Nam. My father himself was in during the Bay of Pig's and Viet Nam but he never was in the war it self. Me all my time was during the Cold War peroid. I am very proud of my history.
