Hometown: Magsingal, Ilocos Sur
We immigrated to the US in 1981 and settled in Kauai, Hawaii where I joined the United States Army the same year. I retired from the Army after 23+ years, 11 years of which were spent in Heidelberg, Kaiserslautern, and Stuttgart, Germany - my best times in the Army.
The rest of my tours were in New York, Maryland, Hawaii, the Middle East, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Alaska, where my family and I settled, at least for the time being.
After retirement, I was hired by the same organization, US Army Alaska, that I worked for as a soldier.
I now work as the budget analyst for the 4th Brigade Combat Team (Airborne), 25th Infantry Division (Light). I have been married to the former Milagros Sajor from Cabugao, Ilocos Sur for 22 years. Kids - Kevin, 20, who's a chemical engineering major at University of Washington, and Kristine, 16, a junior at East High School.
