My family has 120 years in the Air Force...my wife and I 43 between us and we both shed a few tears over this video. Thanks JohnBoyToo! Our son has his USAF 20 in Oct 2014. Sure makes one proud to have served and defended our nations and our freedoms! We did it for the United States and our great partner Canada! We did it for YOU! Thanks for the post as it was an honor to have seen it.

Thank you, your wife and your son for your service.

How far we have come. My father drove a team of of horses pulling an ammunition wagon during WW-1 in Europe. Two of my brothers and a brother-in-law served in the USAF in the 50's and I am proud to have served in the USAF, 1961 to 1965.

Johnboytoo, Again, thank you for that link. And I would like to add to all Veterans on this forum: THANK YOU FOR SERVING TO PROTECT MY FREEDOM.

Lets hear from all our Vets, you can never be too proud to tell us that you stepped up and did your duty for us.

our family also has over 100 years, I completed 30 and did 2 tours in the gulf, the original war and then back again. I must say that's a warm spot in the summer, the water was 98 degrees, the only spot I have ever been to that advertised a chilled pool at the hotels!!
