My avatar is a photography of one of my great grandfather. He volunteered at seventeen as infantryman during the siege of Paris in the 1870 war against Prussia. He later enlisted as a private in the Train arm (logistics) and rose through the ranks to lieutenant-colonel. Reservist in 1911, he was called back to duty during WWI where he served as military commissar in charge of all rail traffic and train stations in Lyon (2nd largest city in France).

I look like him with a shorter mustache and less hair.

My grandfathers were both military officers. My mother's father was Divisional General in the Artillery. My father's father was Colonel in the Gendarmerie. He was in Lebanon during WWII, where my father enlisted in the Free French Navy in january 44 on the day of his 18.
My father was later sent to the USA to be trained as a seaplane pilot (French-Unit-7, Corpus Christi NAS, TX). He stayed in the French Navy after the war and rose to Lieutenant de Vaisseau (Ship-of-the-Line Lt.), flying on heavy seaplanes like Short Sunderland and others. He then entered Air France company where he had the chance to fly as captain on numerous commercial aircrafts: DC8, DC9, Constellation, Super-Constellation, Caravelle, Boeing 707 and Boeing 747.
