My Grandfather, James Monro, emigrated from Scotland in 1911.
Served in WWI
I was only about 8 years old when he passed.
Don't remember much about him, but he was a blacksmith and their house only had a wood stove in the main part of the house.
Outhouse just up from the house on the east side.
Boys got to pee just outside the kitchen door before bed. But Mom and little sister had to go to the outhouse.

Now I feel like John stealing the topic!

My birth ushered in in-door rest room modifications to our house.

Munro, an American hero and well deserving of all the accolades we can bestow....

One of my cousins had 2 sons. Both could have went along to go along as they didn't want nor need.
When they both got of age, the oldest enlisted in the Coast Guard and shortly afterwards the other in the Marine Corps. I am extremely proud of both equally.

Welcome aboard....

*** Looks like I'm one of the old guys. Joined the Air Force 1960 after basic in Lackland & tech school in Amarillo Tx was stationed at Biggs AFB El Paso,Tx. Was a B-52 & KC-135 mech. served my 4 years and in 1964 went to work for the Airlines as an aircraft mech. Retired from FedEx in 2013 {what a great co} Probably the smartest thing I ever did was going into the Air Force. Hope everyone that choose the Air Force had a good a time as I did for those four years plus learning a great trade.
