Like Father like Sons.... My Dad is the American Dream personified. Born an orphan in Mexico, turned shoe shine boy. In his early teens he came to to the U.S. to settle in the projects of Oxnard. Fell in love with a girl and airplanes (crop dusters) which he first encountered working the fields picking strawberries, where he met our Mom.
As a result, he joined the United States Air Force because he was grateful of
the opportunity provided by this country.
40yrs later. 4 Kids, 2 turned Cops, a News Reporter, & business consultant. Great times, vacations, family gatherings, homes, & success.
My parents retired. Pops hung’em up, graciously. With 2 tours in Vietnam. 7yrs enlisted 33yrs reserves. He also then retired from the Department of Defense assigned as the Chief Quality Assurance Specialist for the Boeing company Space Shuttle Main Engine program.
We are grateful for my parents and our father modeled the way. Thank you for who you are, what you showed us, and for your love and leadership..
