I went to Basic with my oldest brother, we were in the same platoon. He later went Active duty as a JAG Officer and later got out as a Cpt.
My other brother joined the Army Reserve as a Combat Engineer. He recently was promoted to MSG (Master Sgt) and was activated for a year, in North Dekota, to train solders for deployment.
My father served in the National Guard, US Navy and US Navy Reserve. He retired as a LTC (Lieutenant Commander)
I remember that I couldn't repress the smile on my face at Basic Training, the day before graduation, when the Drill Sgt. Snapped to Attention and saluted when introduced to my father and several other parents.
I think in my platoon alone, there were children of 3 Command Sgt Majors, 4 First Sgts and 3 Officers the lowest being a Major.
Later we were asked, in a much politer tone than the DIs had ever spoken to us, why we hadn't told them about our parents.
God Bless you all,
