Lucas Family

Hometown: Seagrove, NC
Branch of Service: Army & Navy
Location of Service: Europe

The wartime sacrifice is epitomized in the Lucas Family.

The Lucas family of Seagrove, NC, was made up of 13 siblings. Four of the brothers (Raymond, David, Joe, and Jim) and one sister (Laura) were of the age to serve during World War II.

They all served in the theaters of the conflict. Three brothers and one sister served in the US Army, and one brother in the Navy. All were serving in the war zones at the same time. All came home physically unhurt.

Raymond died in 1999, Laura died in 2000, and Jim died in 2002. David and Joe are still living.

One North Carolina family sent all eligible members (five) into the conflict and they were all part of the greatest generation!
