    Three generations later and our family still serves!

     
    Hello, my name is Derrick Davis. My wife and I are originally from Detroit, Mich. and now live in Pensacola, Florida. We have four wonderful children who are all grown now and two of them caught the bug to serve their country and travel. You see, my father and a few of my uncles served in the U.S. Army in Korea. A few more of my uncles served in Vietnam, also in the Army. Myself, along with three of my cousins all went to Desert Storm, all four of us in the Army as well. Our oldest daughter, Staff Sergeant Tiffany Davis, is an Air Force Reservist in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. She has been deployed to Afghanistan and her little brother which is our oldest son, Senior Airman Derrick Davis II is Active Duty Air Force in Scott Air Force Base, Illinois. He was deployed to the South West Asian Theatre. The kinda broke ranks and joined the Air Force (don't hold it against them) but they serve none the less My wife and I are proud of them beyond words and wish them the best that life has to offer and we want for them to go far and do great. .
