Joseph P Kennedy opposed US entry into WWII as the US envoy to Britain, earning FDRs ire.

Still his son Joe Kennedy was killed in WWII. John F served and was injured in the war despite opposing his father by writing "While England Slept" explaining why Hitler got to run on so long.

Teddy Roosevelt resigned as Secretary of the Navy to serve in the Spanish American War. Several of his sons served in WWI and WWII, and couple killed, I believe.
