What happened the first hundred years in your family?

We all have our own personal history to tell. I was born before the second World War, often referred to as WWII. But my great uncles had experienced WWI, as Navy men. After that war ended, they all made a career of the Navy.

I recall my uncles visiting their sister, Mary Brent (my grandmother) during WWII. Uncle Herbert, a fat, jolly man would entertain us by playing the piano, while Uncle Milton played the violin. Then off they would go to war, somewhere in the Pacific.
