Years of Service: 3
Born in Los Angeles, California, Dad proudly served in the Army-Air Corps as an airplane mechanic during WWII. After the war he completed his Master's Degree and became a junior high school teacher. He met the love of his life while stationed in Roswell, New Mexico during the war, and they were married for 53 years, until his death. He taught me to love my country and honor and respect our flag, and to teach this to my own children and students as I also became a school teacher.
