I shared this picture on Facebook a few days ago, of my dad, flanked by two of his older brothers, Don and Howard. Dad was wounded in Sicily in 1943. His brothers served in Europe through the end of the war.
They were part of a family legacy of serving. Two of my cousins served in the Marine Corps more recently. One was in Beirut when the Marine's barracks was blown up, and assisted in the rescue of his comrades.Continuing the legacy, my nephew served in Afghanistan
