This week we honor a
former Marine who has served our country since graduating high school.
Sergeant Daniel Melgoza
enlisted in the Marine Corps right out of school and was deployed to Iraq in
2001 after 9-11. Throughout the course of his service he completed two tours in
Iraq and another in Afghanistan.
Daniel has continued
to serve, now in another branch of the military, as a member of the U.S. Army Reserves.
He was nominated by
his niece HaLee. She said the family couldn't be more proud of him. She wanted
to tell her uncle, from the whole family, "we love you and thank you for
all that you do."
Daniel we'd also like
to thank you for your service to our country.
