    Greetings and Salutations! I am just wondering about the familial issue of military service. So here is a poll for us all. I don't know how to put it on any other topic so non military folks will see it?

    You or your partner served in the Military?
    A child/children of parents who served also served?
    Child/children of parents who served did not serve?


    Neither you nor your partner served in the Military?
    Child/Children of non serving parents served?
    Child/children of non serving parents also did not serve?

    I was raised in the Marine Corps, born in Camp Lejeune, NC, even married in the chapel in Camp Pendleton. I started to join the military a couple times and never followed through for a number of reasons. Wish now I had. But once a Marine Corps brat, always a Marine Corps brat.

    My first relationship (not married) 2 years Army died active non-combat related we have a daughter together.

    My second relationship (husband) 12 years navy discharged disability. We have 2 sons together.

    My daughter will never be drafted "I say" as her father was already killed

    My sons it will be up to them if they wish the military is not bad it is necessary.

    I haven't been in the Vet's section in a while. Figured I'd answer this one.

    My dad did 20 years, 5 of them Navy and the other 15 Army. My mom was in the Army a couple. She had to get out when she got married to dad...back in the 50's that's how it was. My dad's dad was Army as well, and a couple of his brothers did a tour of duty. Mom's dad was fighting from a ship's deck during WWI.

    My husband has 27 years in the Army. Three to go...

    My son is fixing to join the Coast Guard.

    My daughter joined the Peace Corps last year. (Okay, we're diverse!)

    I've never been in the military, but it's always been a part of my life.
