JD Bennett joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1979 and served for six years. JD spent the next 28 years in law enforcement. After 9/11, JD's son Brock joined the U.S. Army and completed a tour in Iraq during the heat of the war between 2005-2006. He spent 14 years, serving with six of those years stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, training other troops for deployment. After his discharge he too joined the ranks of law enforcement officers and is nearly halfway to his LE retirement. Brock's two sons are now serving; Andrew is serving with the U.S. Army stationed at Fort Bliss in an intel unit, his brother Nathan, U.S. Navy stationed at Fort Meade, Md., with naval intel. Three generations now covering 42 years' combined service to this great nation. All the Bennett boys are members of Post 23, Sanger, Calif., where the elder Bennett has been commander for a total of six years, District 14 commander, and currently serves as Department Commander Jere Romano's aide.
