We were on the rifle range at Pendleton before shipping overseas. More or less had an informal inspection. But this one butter bar kept askin the marines what nationality they were. Guy behind me replied, "HIENZ 57 SIR"! An answer I still use to this day.

i was stationed in okinawa a couple of times... and yes there is a snake there called the habu... also the sr-71 was called a habu. i named my dog habu and just chose it as a screen name as it has a nice ring to it IMO. i posted my ancestry because i had just finished working it all out and i know how nowadays many people are interested in their heritage. i only knew where i came from prior to researching it by family stories. i never knew that i was a direct descendant of the original settlers and second govenor of kentucky. also i never realised that i am a direct descendant of revolutionary war veterans on both sides of my family and all my family had fought in every single war america ever had. too many people can't trace their ancestry past a couple generations. i just tossed it out there for people to see and possibly someone else was interested in their heritage. i find those things interesting. at least i know who i am and where i came from. i even entertained the idea that some others out there might be related to me but if it's a problem with folks here the disregard my last.... it was a slow day and i am the type to want to get a discussion started.

it wasn't an ego thing.... but i don't think anyone can question my american-ness..... that's all. i'm new on this site and am a person that likes to lay all my cards on the table...

03-22-08, 03:47 PM
I often wonder if Dennis Hopper is related to me. Or even Annie Oakley. ( my mothers maiden name )

03-22-08, 03:55 PM
I oppenly welcome you family tooo our shores

Habu, don't take offense, it's just something we've never seen done, that's all.

I thought it was pretty interesting. I've done my own family stuff, all the way back to the 1700's when my 'people' were thrown out of Germany and Ireland and ended up here. They helped found the small town I still live in, and I still live on some of the original land they stole from the Brits way back when.

God, don't get ME started on this or ya'll will be running the Leprechaun back to the political section and my "dead mens laundry" area.

'Fraid not .................you may have the same last name but, he's related to Habu here. ;)

Nah, that's cool Habu. I know more about my dog's background (his Grandfather's name on his Father's side was Tigger's Golden Hoo Hoo, I swear) than I do my own. I would be scared of the bones that would fall out of closets. LOL!
