If any Family members or Friends of Miguel reads this, I am looking for a Picture of him to send to W. DC. for the Vietnam Veterans memorial Wall.
It would be nice to have a Picture of him to put with his Name.

HOME OF THE BRAVE

Although I did not know you, I honor your name. Although I did not know you, I honor your history. Although I did not know you, I honor your service, because without you, I would not be free. I was 7 years old when you honored your country with your life. I am now 58 years old, because you were a citizen of the Home of the Brave.
