Grandson carries on family's military tradition

(Continued)



“My grandfather wrote me every day. It helped keep me going,” he said.

Langhauser said he does hope to be assigned to serve in Iraq and serve alongside his fellow soldiers. “In basic (training), people are unforgettable. There’s a brotherhood. You lean on them as much as they lean on you.”

Rybacki said that though he has mixed feelings about the Iraq war, he’s proud his grandson made the decision to serve his country.

“He’s going to serve and he’s willing to go. I know what that feels like to serve and protect our country.” And, he’s equally proud that Langhauser’s training has followed his own. I don’t think it’s every day your grandson goes to the same basic training (camps) you did.”
