Veterans Day: SrA Josh Ortiz, later was promoted to SSgt, and then got out of the service. After his last tour (of three) in Southwest Asia he and his wife Allison and daughter Julie.

VETERANS DAY

As I enjoy doing every Veterans Day and Memorial Day I've been emailing my Pups and thought of this one. Here's a photo of me with one of my first Pups, back a couple years ago.  At the time he was SrA Josh Ortiz, later was promoted to SSgt, and then got out of the service.  After his last tour (of three) in Southwest Asia he and his wife Allison and daughter Julie came to visit Patti and me here in Portland.  He has since had a son, and found work in California near his and Allison's families.

I guess you could call him a "Graduate" of ODAP.
