Meet Luis from Chicago, currently stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA.
The one word that best describes Luis' life today is "Adventurous."
If Luis could change one thing in the world, he would "want there to be freedom for all." The way he is going about making this change is "fighting" for it.
One year from today, Luis would like to have made a difference in the countries he has served.
If Luis' life were a movie, it would be about the light at the end of the tunnel and a life with no dead ends. It would be a movie about hope and the title would be called "Light at the End of the Tunnel."
I met Luis and Maxwell on the boardwalk at Main Beach as they were enjoying an afternoon away from base Camp Pendleton.
It's always such an honor to meet the men and women who serve our country. Luis is an officer and a gentleman, he plays the part well.
There is something special about a man or woman in uniform, they embody honor and respect. My conversation with Luis was pleasant and positive. He listened well and was able to articulate his thoughts with such wisdom for a young man.
Luis shared with me that he is part of the first responders and will be deployed in July to wherever the greatest needs are at that time.
Thank you Luis for sharing your story with us and for serving our country. Be safe and know that we are proud of you and support you.
