    Dear SSGT Eduardo Garcia Jr, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

  • My Dad, My Strength

    Posted on 11/29/09 - by Robert Garcia bobsatx@gmail.com

    I was 5 years old when my older brother, my mom and I went to the airport and see my dad leave for some destination I had no idea where or what it was. He carried me to the boarding gate and then put me down and told me that I was to be a good boy and be strong to take care of my mother. Last thing I remember was him hugging my mother and then walking away waving.



    A month later at dinner time a blue car came to our house with two men in uniform and a priest. My mom couldn't answer the door or she did not want to, and I was confused thinking that these were men who worked with my dad, why didn't she open the door. Finally she did and she broke down in tears and I began to cry still unware of the bad news. Later that night she explained to me that my dad was not coming back and that he was killed in a place called Vietnam.



    Then on the day of the furneral I saw him lying motionless and I kept remembering what he said, and still repeat it to myself when I need strength to overcome life's obstacles.
