I have no previous background in my family. My family has mob connections but that's as violent as it gets. I was the first to join the military and I took part in OEF (afghan) and also humanitarian assistance (Tomodachi) when the tsunami hit main land Japan.

Russian:
WWI - Russian Empire
Russian Civil War Empire side, against bolsheviks (Future communists) and insurgents
Early Soviet times (undercover, killing communist activists, leaders, organizers. My distant relative was something like a killer from Assassin's Creed, but with usual knife and pistol, lol!) That grandgrandpa died at a close of 30's.
WWII - USSR, officially KIA but we got a letter 3 years ago from a very old french millionare or russian background, asking where my grandpa is, cuz he left France in 2005 and never returned! We replied to that guy like LOL, communists told he died on 9th May. It later turned out he, this French guy and other 3 russians along with 5 Americans, during sacking of German castle, found Roman-Empire times Jewellery and got lots of money. Our guy never returned Sad
After WWII..Well, thanks God nothing. I was rapidly conscripted into Ukrainian army in autumn, though, where I served for two-odd weeks as a drill at shooting range. Said there's possibly going to be another conflict in Serbia, Kosovo. Thanks God, none happened.

Personally I plan to join the US Marine Corps as a programmer, upon migrating to US.

Don't do it bro. If your not going to be a grunt then go to the air force (serious face). You'll get treated better, better living conditions, etc... I get out in 5 months and I can't freakin wait. Yes, I did have some good times while I was in but I still, to this day, feel like it was a mistake.

i don't mean any disrespect, but you may have your dates a little mixed up there dude as WW1 was 1914-18/19 and Vietnam 1955, 65 for US troop deployments. if i'm wrong, your dad is a legend and i will bow down accordingly!!

**preparing to be corrected on my dates!!

Unless Quickill is the oldest member of this clan (no disrespect), the dates are way off.

All WWI warriors are dead, To be in WWII, he would be around his 90s, and Nam would be in his 60's or 70's.

To fight in all three, he would be over 106 years old, by now, if my calcs are correct. I mean, the coins I have from 1914 are 98 years old. Lets say he was 20 when he joined the service to fight in 1912 (WWI), your father would have been born in 1894.

Your bro and sister partaking in the Gulf War is more understandable.

I think there may be one WWI vet or something left from the ANZACs if I remember correctly--or he may be the last one to have died (just like a year ago).

I think I posted this before but my grandfather volunteered in the Army during WWII and his* brother the Merchant Marines (which had I think the highest casualty rates in the country). "The Greatest Generation" is a title the men and women from this period deserve to have. Battling the Great Depression and winning WWII, surely this was our Greatest Generation. One of my other grandfather's brother in a very poor family and was a boxer during this period which reminded me of the movie Cinderella Man.

And my brother proudly serves in the Silent Service of the USN currently.

Well this is possible... if his dad was Patton and he ment the Korean War.

WWI and WWII were almost 20 years apart, it would be impossbile to be infantry in both. Now Infantry in WWI and an officer in WWII is possible, but slim. Vietnam happened in 1970, so that is just not remotley logical. Just laying the facts out there.

A grandpa that fought the WWII, and a relative of some kind who was down in Lebanon (I think, and don't know when, I haven't got many details on this!) and is supposed to be a hero for running out in a minefield for saving one of his fellow soldiers that got hit by a landmine. So I've heard.

Mets your years are wrong. The U.S. had troops in Vietnam from the later 1950's to 1973 starting with advisors before it became a full blown conflict. Also many soldiers in ww2 lied about their ages I believe the youngest soldier was 14 or 15. Also there are accounts of soldiers fighting in ww2,korea and vietnam(mostly in plt command or above)

How did you track your ancestors back 500-800 years ago?

That doesn't really trace back 5-8 centuries ago unless you are part of the lineage of a prince.

Yeah, I agree Outlaw. Like my last post said, it would be impossible to be in WWI.

The last WWI survivor died last year.

"Unless Quickill is the oldest member of this clan (no disrespect), the dates are way off.

For all of these, I am just putting his dad at enlising at 20 years of age.

To have been 20 diring WWI, then fight in WWII, he would be around 45, and Nam would be in his late 50's or early 60's.

To fight in all three, he would be over 106 years old, by now, if my calcs are correct. I mean, the coins I have from 1914 are 98 years old. Lets say he was 20 when he joined the service to fight in 1914 (WWI), your father would have been born in 1894.

I read a book about the 32nd Division "Ghost Mountain Boys" if they are connected.

Just found out my Grandad actually lied about his age to join World War 2. He also left a refuelling station in Diep 15 minutes before everything blew-up, after a submarine left it's electrics on. (He was in torpedo boats)
