Yes. My Dad was a career Marine so I am a military brat. Then married a retired Army officer. The military is in my blood via my loved ones...

My ex-husband was an Air Force officer, so for many years I was a military spouse.

Only my son is a career man, and the first officer. However, we, including myself, have all served in combat since my Italian great-grandfather fought in the Spanish-American War,

My father was a vet in WWII years before I was born. But other than my dad & a uncle, (mother's brother) no one has been in the military.

No, but I am the first son in a German family. Don't know which would be worse.

My dad was in Vietnam. My grandfather's served. However, it didn't define them in that way. They never talked about it much.

Although I have had relatives in every war the US has been in from the Revolution down to Korea, when I came along my father's military service was long over.
