Serving in Armed Forces Is a Family Tradition

December 20, 1990

Regarding the Nov. 8 article "The Legacy of Military--Lessons for Latinos," my grandparents had eight sons who served in World War II and Korea. One died in Bastogne, another in Germany and one was captured in Korea.

I later followed. After completing community college, I enlisted in the 82nd Airborne Division. My being in the Airborne let people know that Hispanics love and are willing to fight for this country. I'm back in college, working steady and am in the Army Reserves.

P.S. On Nov. 21, I was ordered with my unit to Saudi Arabia.
