    on my mother's side; she was born in New Jersey but her parents and older sister emigrated here from Germany in the 1920s. (Actually her dad was here for a few years, then sent for his wife and daughter.) So both immigration and military red tape (my parents met when my dad was waiting for the Navy to find his paperwork after WWII so he could go home and marry his high-school sweetheart) are responsible for my existence (if you're looking for someone/something to blame).
