military Crawleys

I would definitely like to hear about the Rev. War "real soldier". And any other details about Crawley Rev. vets and who their families were. Do Crawleys just love a good fight? My granddaddy, Charles Lamar Crawley, Sr., joined the army toward the end of WWI (told 'em he was 18 and evidently nobody wanted to check on him). He stayed active in his veterans group until WWII, and then he joined again. This time he served as an MP in France, Germany, England, Belgium. I remember him well - straight military bearing, stern visage, no nonsense. I can just see him breaking up bar fights. He loved the army and saved all kinds of things from those years - my dad, Charles, Jr., has much of those momentos in a large display case.
I have a Crawley first cousin (his mother is my dad's sister)who is also interested in Crawley military men. He served in Viet Nam and was trained as a medic. I know Buren's job required a fair amount of time in a helicopter, but I doubt he ever considered jumping out!
I'll send you more "war stories" soon.
Thanks again for your help,
Linda
