Honor thy Fathers and Mothers 2022

We remember their service part I

When we preserve military relics and study military history, we are honoring the memory of all those who have served. In recognition of Father’s Day, Military Trader invited readers to submit photos and histories of anyone in their families who has or is serving in a branch of the United States military. We are proud to present the following mini-biographical notes on those who have served.
