A couple members of my family served. I'm not sure where they were all stationed and the dates but I do know the following.

Uncle Don Williamson - United States Army. Served in Vietnam

Great Uncle Raymond Fisher - United States Airborne Army. Served in World War II. His fighter plane was shot down and he died the day before the war ended.

Great Uncle Wilson "Wimpy" Maynard - United States Army. Served in World War II. He had a Japanese bayonette go in his stomach and out his back. He survived but years later died due to complications of the injury. There's a story that he was on patrol and he was so tired of fighting. He came across a Japanese soldier and they walked in circles just staring at eachother before walking in seperate directions.

Great Uncle Pearlin Maynard - United States Army. Served in World War II. He was a gunner. He later died of throat cancer that they blame on the smoke from the discharged shells going into his throat.

Cousin Vern "Mr. Speaker" Riffe Jr - United States Airborne Army Served as a gunner in World War II.

Cousin Mike Stanko - United State Marine Corps. Served 3 tours of duty in Iraq. He was a mechanic for the unmanned drones that they fly.

Brother Brett Maynard II - United States Army Reserve. Basic Training Fort Jackson, SC September 2006-December 2006. AIT Fort Gordon, GA December 2006- April 2007.
