Richard Sheffield announced that his son has
decided to the USAF either as a rescue diver or
medic.

More than 48 million Americans have served in the
military during war and peace since the year 1776,
and there are currently up to 23 million living
Veterans. Two million of those live in California,
the highest population of former servicemen and women in any state. More than 1.3 million of U.S.
veterans have served in multiple wars, according to
the US Census Bureau. About 100,000 participated
in three conflicts -- roughly split between those who
served in the Vietnam War as well as the Gulf War
and Iraq war, and those who took part in World War
II and the Korean and Vietnam wars. About 1.6
million of the nation’s veterans are women.
