Remembered in Edinburg, TX
Jose, you were the second young man from Edinburg to fall in the Vietnam War, a war that seemed so foreign and distant that it might as well have been on Mars until first, one Marine gave his life, then another. I do research and tributes to all of you because you are my heroes and I don't want the people of Edinburg to ever forget your sacrifice. I borrow Philip Caputo's words from 'A Rumor Of War' because they are so fitting. 'Yours was the greater love. You died for the man you tried to save, and you died 'pro patria'.....You were faithful.' The people of Edinburg still remember and still care. Rest in peace, knowing that you accomplished the plan that God had for you.

Jose and I went through bootcamp together at MCRD San Diego California. After bootcamp graduation Jose and I were stationed together at Marine Corp Barracks, Long Beach, Cal for almost a year. Jose received his orders to serve in Vietnam in 1967. I was very saddened by his loss. Jose was a great guy with a sense of humor. He loved bodybuilding and working out and was a good Marine. Very sharp! God bless you Jose!
