Whenever John Espinosa sky-dives these days, he is on a mission far more ambitious than simply landing safely on terra firma. Espinosa, a 55-year-old Army veteran, wants to help educate the public about Latino soldiers, provide a role model for Los Angeles youths and keep alive the memory of the Los Banos, Philippines, rescue mission by the U.S. military in 1945. Luckily for him, he is not alone.
