    My great-grandfather served in WWI. Not sure about anyone else, we're not really the military type of family.

    You should have made it a multiple choices poll.

    Re: Have you or a family member served in the military

    My great grandfather was an army Ssgt in the European theater, WWII.

    I had a great uncle who died in combat in Sicily, WWII, under Patton.

    I've served in OIF II, and the evacuation of the American Embassy in Lebanon in 2006. No one else in my close family has served, though I have a cousin who washed out of army boot camp (bad ankles, apparently).

    If you were in the IDF then you trained in Krav Maga. Am curious if you still workout with KM. I have been doing KM for over year here in the states. Am certain it is the Americanized version but nonetheless it is an asskicker of workout.
    A few yrs ago I got involved with Monte Aizik with Combat Krav Maga. Later I heard a lot of bad press about him that appears he is not what he professes. Have you ever heard of him and his program? Thank you .

    As for the poll, I served as alot of family members. The only fatality in my family was great great grandfather in the Confederate Army. He actually died from measles. When he became so ill his unit left him alongside a road. Have a letter from my great great grandmother then writing about it and wondering if the damn yankees found him and killed him.

    As for my own service there were good parts and bad parts.

    Re: Have you or a family member served in the military

    Where I come from, military service is and/or was a requirement for men. So yes, lots of family members, including my father and most of my uncles and cousins.

    Yes, hindsight is 20/20 so they say. Oversight on my part.

    I am familiar with Krav Maga. It's quite brutal and is a mainstay of Israeli Special Forces training.

    I personally prefer kick-boxing and have been engaged in this sport since I was a youngster.
