My American story started when I was brought from a small village in Mexico to the USA at the age of 2.
I learned English from watching cartoons on a black and white TV and practiced my new language in a public school.
After various schools, and dropping out of high school, I enlisted in the Marine Corps and soon married the most beautiful girl in my world, unfortunately I would lose her to a car accident 9 years later.
As a single father raising our 2 kids, I stayed in the Marines for almost 16 years, got out and enlisted in the Army National Guard serving 6 more years on active duty.
After a military retirement I enjoyed a brief career in the corporate world, while attending college courses and graduating with a Bachelors Degree.
I am ready to retire from the United States Postal Service and proud member of Our Union
