My Uncle was A Hero

Raymond was my uncle, my mom's brother, and I am so thankful to see that he was honored with so many medals. I didn't know this prior to reading this article. My mother recently agreed to submit to a DNA test to see if his remains were ever found. I hope that my mother and her sister are able to get some closure before it's too late. He was merely 17 years old when he left home to serve in our military. I'm proud to say Raymond Arriaga was my uncle. May he rest in peace and God bless his soul.
