Thursday Thirteen #3: Favorite "Veterans"

In honor of Veteran's Day, I decided that today's list would be dedicated to those that have gone before us, in no particular order of course.  Just to remind those of you, a veteran is one who has served in the military, especially in a war.

1.   John Franklin Crumpler, World War II (my late paternal grandfather)
2.   Robert W. Kohler, Vietnam (my maternal grandfather)
3.   Joshua L. Chamberlain, The Civil War (Union)
4.   Audie Murphy, World War II
5.   George Washington, Revolutionary War
6.   Robert E. Lee, The Civil War (Confederacy)
7.   George S. Patton, World War II
8.   Henry Mucci, World War II
9.   John J. Pershing, World War I
10. John Paul Jones, Revolutionary War
11. Andrew Jackson, War of 1812
12. Ulysses S. Grant, The Civil War (Union)
13. Carl Brashear, served during the Korean War and Vietnam
