I come from a family where participating in the army means a great lot. Consequently, my father is a Navy veteran as he was a part of it for four years, and my grandfather had been in the army for two years before he had my father. Without any doubt, this kind of position in society implies respect, and this is what I feel for my father and grandfather.
On the other hand, living in a family with such great history can be quite overwhelming. Every action I decide to make is strongly influenced by what my father and grandfather will think of it. Therefore, I always think twice before doing something, because the opinion of two veterans is highly important for me. What is more, I believe that having a veteran as a father is a matter of great honor; I greatly respect and love my father.
To come to a conclusion, I have to admit that sometimes having to live in a family with two navy veterans is both interesting and hard. It is interesting because I get to find out more details about what they have had to do while serving the country, and it can be sad at times because they always have such great expectations of me. However, I always struggle to make my father and grandfather proud of what I do, and, by doing so, I find comfort in their praises. After all, receiving a good word from my father and grandfather is a very big deal for me.
