This week we honor an Army and Navy
veteran, Pedro Martinez.
Pedro served as a Sergeant in the U.S.
Army from 1968 to 1971. He then went on to serve our country as a Yeoman in the
Navy for 20 years, also serving in Desert Storm.
Pedro is now retired from the military
but his fighting days didn't stop there. He was diagnosed with cancer but has
now become a four-year survivor.
Mary nominated her brother and said she
is so proud of his fighting spirit. He comes from a big family and she said
that he is loved by his 12 brothers and sisters along with many more nieces and
Mary added that Pedro has a huge heart and is ready to
help those in need without question. She wanted to say thank you to her brother
for proudly serving in the military and being such a wonderful brother.
