My father remembers you from his hometown in Mexico.

Speaking of Veterans day this weekend my father and uncles where discussing my fathers draft notice in the late 60's and my father recalls a hometown friend that was home on leave in Jalisco, Mexico during Easter (semana santa) in 1970 and how he heard he had passed in Vietnam soon there after. My father also remembers how athletic he was and how he had a foot race with my fathers cousin in March of 1970. I had head this story numerous times since I also served in the Army.
When I asked my dad his name, he stated 'Severiano Rios' I searched it online and I landed here.. his home location and burial site matched what my father stated.
My father is from a neighboring city in Mexico where Severiano was from. My father stated how brave those that where drafted and answered the call where since many didnt.

Renegade Woods

On 02 Apr 1970 a recon team from F Company, 75th Rangers, was sent into an area called the "Renegade Woods" to investigate reports of a large NVA/VC force. The Rangers found the enemy - all they could handle and more besides. Companies B and C, 2nd Bn, 27th Infantry, were inserted as the initial reaction force; A/2/27 joined in the late afternoon, and two additional companies from 2/22nd Infantry came in the next day. By the time the fighting ended several days later, over 100 NVA/VA troops from the 271st NVA/VC Regiment were dead, a large base camp was in American hands, and twelve American soldiers were dead:

About Myself

About Myself
Mr. Ríos... my name is Noelle Marie Gordon, and I'm from Florida. I know we've never met since I was born in 1999 in November the seventh and you died during the Vietnam War, but I've read about you on my online textbook. You have an ancestry, right? I'd read a poem by one of your ancestors in your last name, Alberto, about the Vietnam Wall. I have an ancestry, too. We have much in common, but I've also have a family tree. My family is much more different from yours, anyways, because my family? Really big one! I'm in high school with one of my big sisters, and you're in the army. Also, you have someone in your first name from Texas in the Vietnam War. He's different from you, too.

I like to surf the web. Even on my school laptop. I love to play video games. And I like listening to music and watching videos online. I have two documents on my big computer at my house: one about my life as a super heroine for myself, and one about both my life in the war against Lord Fuse and the new lives of five Andromeda Galaxy aliens that were originally re-captured by a Osmosian named Aggregor for the game Fusionfall.

In case you don't know, a laptop is like a smaller version of a big computer, but below the desktop's picture is apps for it.

I'm pretty much of a bookworm myself when researching on stuff like this, but I can also copy pictures online on the big computer, which I sometimes go on to which I'm not using my laptop. I have sixteen saved pictures on my picture folder, just like the example I have for my remembrance for you, and 283 ones on my iPhoto app on my MacBook Air. It's the name of my school laptop.

Well, so long for now. Rest in piece, my friend. The world's proud of you.
