Your Nephew

Much like my sister, I grew up hearing all the stories about you when I was a kid. I looked up to you and I never met you. I wanted to be like you when I grew up. That is the main reason I joined the Army. I wanted to be an Airborne Ranger just like you. You made our family proud of you. Im glad to say that I made it home safe. I found out the hard way that combat is not as cool as it looks on TV. I hope that I carried on the Apellido name the way you would have wanted me to. Rangers Lead the Way!

Your niece

I will always remember the stories I got to hear as I was growing up about how handsome and brave you were. Grandpa and Grandma never let us forget about you. Although I never knew you I always knew about you.
