Sure - why not! We can all contribute to the making of a specialized SPAM

Subject: Do you have a serviceman in your family tree??
: Greetings fellow researchers:
: Do you have a serviceman in your family tree?
: I have spent countless hours pouring over books, research materials,
: and military documents. I've read the history of the AirForce. I have
: purchased books describing uniforms, and unit information. All of this
: just to describe to my descendants what it was like during different
: wars. But what is most forgotten is the men that served in these wars.
: Living or dead, they paid you with their time, their lives, their
: families happiness. They stood up and defended a belief that we should
: be a nation of our own. The fought against eachother in a war so
: bloody, that it left a nation divided even to this day. They cried out
: against the attrocities commited against Cuban's and then went to defend
: them. They went over the seas to protect the United States in not one
: but Two World Wars. Since then they have defended not only our own
: nation, but that of others.
: Many of these men are still alive today. They may be in the home
: next to yours, or your Grandfather. They may sit down with the children
: in your villiage and talk to them about the old days. They are your
: friends, companions, or an acquaintance, who enlisted and served in
: times of peace and in times of war. They left friends and family behind
: and dedicated themselves to the ideal of peace. At a great personal
: cost, why not take a few moments to thank them for it?
