His love for the US Army and the US National Guards was unlimited.
He was a black belt in martial arts, loved to dance, keep smiles on others faces. He always put others and family/friends before him.
He gave his all to the Army and he was up for promotion to E-5 and he didn’t live to receive his promotion!!! President Obama sent an acknowledgment certificate thanking him for his services protecting our great country!!!!
