    My maternal grandfather served in WWII. All I know about him is that he was a captain in the army and sent to the Pacific. My mom says he was fluent in English, Latin, and German and that he was an architect/engineer. He was from Pennsylvania.

    I was told that my paternal grandfather wanted to join the navy but because his older brothers were already in the military he had to stay behind and help at the farm. I have no idea what kind of farm they had. He lived in New Jersey.

    My paternal step-grandfather was in the navy, in the Pacific during WWII. Afterwards he joined the army and eventually became a regional commander.

    My maternal grandmother wasn't in the military but she worked for the war department (department of defense) in/near Washington, D.C. during WWII. She was a secretary. She was from North Carolina. She met my maternal grandfather in Washington D.C. when he was living there. Their grandfathers fought on opposite sides of the Civil War.

    My German great-grandfather also fought in WW2, on the Eastern front. He survived, but his health was affected from the war. He passed away before I was born.

    Most probably his brothers also fought in WW2, I don't know for sure at this moment. After the communist occupation they couldn't keep in touch, and any time one was trying to get information about him and his family from outside the communist block, they eventually got the answer that he died in the war, just to make things simpler for the communists. Only in the '70's, one of his brothers, who emigrated to Western Germany at the end of the war, managed to find our family with the help of the red cross, because the borders were more open then. Unfortunately, he and his family were able to keep in contact with my family only for a short while after that, because he soon died and he was the only one speaking Romanian in his family in Germany, while my family in Romania couldn't speak German anymore. Hearing this story from my German grandma really made me sad. But I'm glad our relatives who emigrated to the West tried to find us repeatedly and didn't give up, despite the communists who didn't want people from inside the communist block to have any contacts with relatives from the West.

    I suppose that when you think about it, almost everybody on here will have had a relative of some kind who fought in WW2.

    In post #109 I only quoted the cases that I personally know of but had I asked all of my uncles (of which there were 19!) what they did in WW2 the list would have been considerably longer.

    You surely can't be surprised by this though, FS

    The USA, Britain, Canada, Australia, Holland & Norway were all involved (for various durations) in the war against Germany.

    One can adore his/hers ancestors or curse them (on the quiet).

    None of my direct relatives, but an uncle (or cousin, don't recall) of my grandfather was active in the Norwegian resistance movement up in the far North, being complicit in blowing up some German warship at one point. Got to meet him once, but I believe he has passed away by now.
