More appropriate for the WoWS line than here, but my grandfather Frank Blake was a Torpedo Bomber pilot as an Ensign in WWII in the Pacific. He received the Navy Cross and the Distinguished Flying Cross for his part in sinking the Musashi during Leyte Gulf. I had another grandfather who was a (mounted) cavalry officer prior to WWII, and my dad was a Marine in the post-Korea era. I also had a relative on my mom's side who was a WWII bomber pilot in the European theater, though to my knowledge he didn't achieve anything like my grandfather did. They're all a big part of why I joined up myself.
