Harold T. Uphouse. The “T.” stood for his middle name, Theodore, but some people simply called him “Tee.” (He was an avid golfer.) His second wife, Sible, called him Hal. Regardless of what name he went by, he was my mother’s father.
My parents met in the Army. Not only was my mother in the military, but each generation of her family has been involved in major conflicts going back to the Revolutionary War. I am proud of my military ancestors who served for our freedom.
