"Chava, I remember you visiting my parents home with your wife and baby. Our families were always getting together. I was only 11 years old when I learned you died in Vietnam. I felt sad and I have never forgotten you. I was very happy when I read that you received a Purple Heart and all the other honors. God Bless You!"

~Irma Valdez




He was buried with full military honors at Santa Rosa Catholic Cemetery in his hometown of Pecos, Texas.
