This is my Godson John Paul Cantu. He is my oldest nephew's only Son. He proudly served our Country, rather than finish his College Education (which he Aced). When he served in Iraq, not only did he bond with his Band of Army Brothers...but he befriended local Village People... who recognized his Tattoo of the Virgen De Guadalupe... they saw him as someone who respected not only his Country..But his Catholic Religion as well. He was awarded the Bronze Star for his courage and composure in the face of danger.
When he returned from his tour, he came back as a changed Man. I cannot fathom what he saw and experienced while serving in Iraq. I do know however, He came back a Proud American, A great Son, A Great Man! I am grateful for his service to our Country!
