It is an Honor to see my Uncle's name and service remembered. I never got to meet him, and only know of him through stories. He was a man of impeccable character, Honor a patriotism. I was blessed to have been given his name as my middle name. Love you Tio! You would be very proud indeed of the legacy you left behind.
