My great-great-great-Grandfather (don't quote me on the greats), George Washington Bice and his son James Madison Bice (yes, those were their real names) fought in the Civil War. Their journals are astounding.

Vic's Grandfather (Hope) served in the Navy.

Vic's Grandfather(Jackson) waded ashore at Normandy.

They are all heroes.

  3. I was at the bus stop today talking to another mom. She said they had a long night last night- 2 hour ordeal over her 3rd grader having to write a paragraph for/about Veteran's Day. She pulled out some genealogy her mother had done and they had several ancestors who fought in the Civil War (both sides) and WWI and WWII. Finally she asked her son what was wrong. He said "You want me to honor men who kill people". So she went on to say that back then it was an honorable thing to be in the military. I said "And it is not honorable today?!" She replied that no it was not, that it is not good to kill people and that her ancestors were intelligence officers and such (a.k.a. not on the front line "killing people"). I was so surprised and shocked! You may have strong feelings about the decisions for war but when is serving your country NOT HONORABLE???
