    I told everybody about my service now I'll tell you about the ones who influenced me.
    Grandfather was in Pattons Army and won a silver and bronze star, two purple hearts. My other grandfather was in the navy, Pacific theater and had two ships sunk from under him. A Kamakazie ended his military career but he lived a lot of years and was the first to let me drive a car, love ya Pops!!
    Two uncles served in the Navy in the late 50's and one in the Army in the late 60's. Two cousins were Marines, one was in Beirut when the barracks was blown up. One served on the Honor Guard in DC for awhile, both enlisted as privates but retired as Captains. Two of my brothers were in the Army, one went to Desert Storm. Four cousins were in the Army.

    Thank you to all the above who have seved and are my brothers and sisters and thanks to all the old hot rodders that fueled a spark in my young heart and set me on my path with destiny.........old cars.
