Andy Ruiz funeral

I attended the funeral with my parents.. Heard stories of his Clovis High School football days. I was attending Modesto High School. Later in my last week's of School . I went to Air Force recruiter , to fix airplanes instead of rifles . Poor no money for college told recruiter I'll sign within last 2 weeks before graduation. Monday called into office of counselor . He said Honor Roll kid what're your plans after graduation ? Air Force !!. Was given State College Grant. An a military deferment . Parents prayers were answered n always remember Andy Ruiz. We all have a purpose in life . Andy saved others life's so they could make a difference in this world. Now I'm a Prayer Minister praying for patients in Hospitals . The way I Believe I'll see Andy inside the Gates of Heaven. Standing with my parents n Aunt Ramona .

FOR ANDY

I remember Andy as a kid. The RUIZ family lived very close to my mother, and brother in Clovis. Brother David and Andy and his brother were close friends, along with Gene Garcia who lived across the street from my mother.
I have been to the wall many times and it always pulls me when I see the
names. I have seventy-nine brothers on that wall, and I will never forget
any of them. I have always left something at the wall. Sometimes it a bracelet,
sometimes its a medal or ribbon. I have rubbings of all the names of brothers
I lost. Many people thank me for my service, I respond by telling them if they
really want thank some one go to the WALL and thank the 58 thousand plus
names. on that wall. ALL GAVE SOME,SOME GAVE ALL.
GOD BLESS, ANDY

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Andrew Andy Ruiz, 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

Curt Carter
