33. Compare President Obama's upbringing with the multi married, draft dodging, mobbed up Giuliani

1941, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor two brothers, related to six US presidents, enlisted in the Army.

In 1944, these brothers, Stanley and Ralph Dunham went ashore at Normandy, and served their nation fighting the Naziís across France, Italy and Germany. Another young American, Stanleyís, brother-in-law, Charles Payne, fought with Pattonís Third Army and was among the troops that liberated the prisoners at the Nazi Death camp of Buchenwald.

In 1945, upon return from the war zones of Europe, Stanley Dunham and his wife Madelyn, who had served the nationís war efforts by working on a B-29 assembly line, settled down and started a family.

In 1961 a grandson was born to the Dunhamís at the Kapiíolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

In 2008, that grandson won the election for President of the United States with 52.7% of the vote, a 9,522,186 margin, in an election noted for the highest voter turnout in 40 years.

Today Sergeant Stanley Dunham rests in the Punchbowl National Cemetery where he was buried with full military honors. The light from Sergeant Dunhamís life, and the example of his familyís sacrifice, and selfless service to this nation, will forever brighten the pages of American history.
