A Note To The Granddaughters
In an earlier note, I mentioned that of all the places I've lived or visited, the place I still miss is San Antonio. A reader sent me this video. This is SOOOOOOO San Antonio. My father-in-law, Flavio, Sr, was Hispanic. His father came across the river many decades ago and was returned to Mexico, but his family stayed on, first in Beeville, TX, and then some of the family to San Antonio. The individual in the linked video reminds me of all the wonderful memories I have of my father-in-law. He, too, made the military a career, including one tour in Korea, and two tours in Vietnam. He also caught the tail-end of WWII so he was one of the few veterans that had "four wars" on his US Army veteran's ball cap.
