Grandfather on my mom’s side. He was in Europe somewhere guarding munitions that were stored in a railcar. He went into the munitions railcar and sat down to have a smoke. (Gotta love the 40s). About 5 minutes later a german soldier hops into the railcar, locks eyes with my grandpa and they both proceed to shit their pants and freeze. A few moments pass and my grandpa offers him a cigarette. They sit there smoking a while before the german motions to the door and my grandpa nods. German vacates the area and grandpa continues with his duties.

My great grandfather (hopefully that counts too) was born in Vienna, Austria. He moved to the Netherlands at a relatively young age but both of these countries would eventually become part of the Third Reich of course. So with Austrian blood, he was immediately called to service in the German army after the Netherlands were fully occupied. With the risk of being sent to labor camps, many like my great grandfather complied, as did he himself. He had an administrative position for much of the war, but in the later years he was sent to Italy. There he served for a while but never saw combat as far as I know, he dealt with business away from the front lines.
