I have a lot relatives that fought in wars. My dad even is a veteran. But I am going to do 2 relatives.
#1 is Vinett Fine his profile is https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Fine-206. He migrated to Tennessee at the time of Revolutionary War. He served under Col. John Sevier in several Indian battles along the North Carolina line. In one of the Indian battles he was killed and the volunteers needed to retreat so they cut a hole in the ice of a creek and placed his body there, planning to come back later and retrieve it. A sudden thaw melted the ice and his body was never found. Today the creek is known as Fine's Creek. It is near Asheville, North Carolina. He was listed Dunmore County Militia in 1775 and in the 8th Virginia Regiment with Rev. Muhlenberg. "German Regiment." In July 1781, he was in a party attacking a party of Indians with Col. John Sevier.
In April 1783, he was with a force who crossed the mountain to the Overhill Town (Cherokee Indian) of Cowee and burned it. All Indian aggressions upon the Pigeon and French Broad River settlements had come from this town. The force was commanded by Col. William Lillard and Major Peter Fine.
In the Winter of 1783, Indians began to steal horses and cattle from the Big Pigeon settlements in Cocke County TN. Major Peter Fine and Captain John McNabb raised a company of men and followed the Indians across the mountains into North Carolina, where they killed one Indian and wounded another, but recovered the stolen horses. The Indians fired upon them, killing Vinett Fine, and wounding Thomas Holland, and a man named of Bingham. Because there was no time for grave-digging and apparently no safety in trying to escape with the body, the ice in the creek was broken and the body placed there. Before the men could return for it, the creek became flooded by a sudden change in temperature, and the body was washed away and was never recovered. To this day, the creek is known as Fine's Creek. Fine's Branch, in 1998, is in Cocke County, TN.
