Three wars and more in our family history

My dad, Herman E. Brose, served in France during World War I with the 14th Engineers, serving mostly on the ammunition trains. He was hit twice with mustard gas but survived to live a long life afterward. My father-in-law, Dean Herrington, served in World War II as a Navy Seabee in the South Pacific, and my stepfather-in-law was a combat engineer in the first wave on Omaha Beach on D-Day. Neither was seriously injured. I served with the U.S. Air Force from 1951-1955 as a medic during the Korean conflict. My son-in-law, Jason Zartman, served in the Army in Korea during the late 80s. You might call us a military family!!!!!
