Bringing it all back home

According to family lore, my paternal grandfather was stationed on the U.S.-Mexico border while serving in the U.S. Army during the first world war. While there he shot off the ear of a guy who was sneaking across the border. He also came down with a case of malaria that he never quite got over and which contributed to his death in 1953 while still fairly young.
