I have a very high respect for my father-in-law who survived the World War 2. He served the Army together with his two brothers who were also got drafted in the military at the same time but served in two separate or different posts. His brother who was assigned in Germany was killed during the battle and never made it home, his body was buried there. It must be so hard for their Mom, I can't even even imagine how painful it was for her and the rest of the family.
I think he inspired my husband to join the Navy and now a veteran himself as well. (I will update this post later).
