Thanks for the heads-up: November 11 is just around the corner. And thanks for putting names to two of those who served in the PTO, and for identifying them so specifically.
I know nothing about the Tejon Tribe, except that is is a small tribe ( but perhaps part of a larger clan or nation). But I now know that at least two served (with the USMC and/or USN, I assume) in a time of national need.
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers. And stay safe. bg
