Like many people my age, my Grandfather's were involved in WWII. My Paternal Grandfather was a Sailor in the Navy. My Maternal Grandfather was in the Marines, and earned a Purple Heart and a Distinguished Service Medal. And another medal that I've seen but I don't know what it was, so...I'll have to do some research.

Jack's (presumed) Birthfather is a serviceman, and we intend to make sure that we instill in Jack a proper respect for his country and those who gave their last measure of devotion to the land love.
