Well, my legacy of service started with Cpl. Henry Snively in the Pennsylvania Militia during the Revolutionary War, serving at the Battle of Brandywine and Trenton. I have two descendants who fought in the Civil War and were killed at Sharpsburg. The warriors are my lineage on my mother's side of the family.
My father served at the end of World War II and the Korean War. His brother also served in World War II. My brother served in the Vietnam War era as a Marine. I myself served 22 years of combined service in the Marines and the California Army Guard as a Grunt. I am a proud Desert Storm and OEF vet.
This legacy of mine is just a way of giving back to this great and FREE nation of ours. Semper Fi!!!
Of course I am a proud Maryland Legionnaire, being a member for 23 years as a PUFL. My father was a member for 39 years, and before my brother passed he was a member for 32 years.
