For his family

Manuel R. González-Maldonado was born in Humacao to Providencia and Rafael González Peña, who lived at E-17 Urbano Los Angeles, in Carolina, at the time of their son's death. During the 1930s and 40s, Rafael González Peña was a member of Rafael Muñoz's orchestra and, in fact, he was a famous saxophonist as well as a composer. After his son's death in Vietnam in 1965, González Peña wrote a book,  "In posthumous honor to the memory of a young military man" (published 1970), which he wrote in memory of his son PFC Manuel R. González Maldonado. The Spanish title of the book is “Honras póstumas a la memoria de un joven militar” and it may only be available via the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture in San Juan.

You are not Forgotten

Manuel: You gave the Ultimate Sacrifice
If any Family members or Friends of Manuel 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.

Thank You

Dear PFC Manuel Gonzalez-Maldonada,
I hope your photo is put here because this is a wall of faces and yours should be here. Thank you for your service as an Infantryman. I did the research on your 74th birthday, happy birthday. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Epiphany. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

I had a photo of you while joking with others in our company. I don’t have it any longer but your smiling fade is forever in my mind.
