Military Monday: Happy Veteran's Day

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.
Elmer Davis

In commemoration of Veteran's Day I wanted to write a short post honoring my direct line ancestors that served in the military and are/were American War Veterans.

Mark Vincent Haskins - my father.  He fought in the Vietnam War from July '68-July '69.  He was a Sergeant in the US Army.

Vincent A. Haskins - my grandfather.  He fought in World War II as a Seaman, 1st Class in the US Navy.

Seymour Haskins - my 4th great grandfather.  He fought in the War of 1812 in the 2 Reg't Artillery US Vols.

  1. I just discovered a great free online resource for searching archived USA based small town newspapers (news, photos, obituaries, etc) via the website of archiving company Small Town Paper’s website. It’s definitely worth checking out!
