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.
