Dad was the youngest of 5, and born during the war (actually both of my parents were born before VE day).
Mine was before the great depression. :shock:
Both my parents were born in 1919, paternal (adopted) grandfather was a chaplain during the Spanish American War and WW I, his wife was born in what would become North Dakota before it was a state.

Dad was in the Marines in World War 2. I'm a late boomer (born 1963).

Funny how the generations look funny depending on how early or late people have kids. Both of my grandfathers were world war veterans.

Paternal grandfather fought in WW1, maternal grandfather fought in WW2.

Paternal grandfather was 6 years old when my maternal GREAT-grandmother was born.

My wife is the last year of the Boomers, and I'm the first year of GenX.

Her laugh was a little strained when I remarked that she's a generation older than me.

I took a newbie to the range yesterday. I provided range fees, ammo, eyes, ears, targets, and firearms.

Before we went, I showed him a selection of handguns to choose from. It was a lunch time trip. so limited. He chose a 1911 and a S&W 686. He did pretty well. My favorite part was hearing the "Whoooaaa!" the first time he shot the 686.

I'm going to try to get him back next week for long guns. I'm thinking an AR, a .22, and a lever gun.

I haven't done this in a while. It was fun.

Probably a good thing my boss didn't walk in and see 6 handguns spread out on my desk. Must remember to take the XD9 home that I forgot in my desk drawer.

So apparently the DOD thinks it knows my son's ethnicity better than he does. He lists himself as white/black mixed and country of origin as Germany. They Keep changing it to black and country of origin as Africa (WTF - Africa is not a country)

He says he has corrected it like five times and they keep changing it back and is about to give up. So when did the DOD formally adopt the KKK'd one drop rule?

At this point, I'm just waiting for the lightning strike. :(
