I tell people but they dont beleive it:
Me Retired Master Chief, US Navy
My Father was in the Air Force - But was in the Canadian Essex Scottish Brigade during WWII before America got in the fight. Anyway he was at Diepe Beach. Was captured. Escaped and ran the streets for 4 years working with the restistance, teaching, killing etc. He wasnt so "right" when he got back :(
My Great Grandfather (I'm now over 50) who was in the Civil War as a captain.
His grandfather was a Captain in the militia during the war for independence.
I know this cause my dads sisteer was a teacher at NYU Regents, she taught geneology and did a whole thesis on this.
