Fred,Sir,

Yes, 1SG (R) Ignacio (John) R. DeLaRosa is my father. He just recently retired for good and is living in Salado, Texas. He retired from the Army in 1981 and had worked in the Texas Criminal Justice system and VA Psychiatric Service since his retirement from the Army.

He is well and enjoying retirement.

Wow... DeLarosa. That brings back memories. Before the gulf war started I was in Nurenburg doing an I.G. Inspection at 2 Acr Regiment. Hqs. (VII Corps I.G.) When we bombed Iraq.. I was sent too Amberg to help those guys deploy. Thats where I ran into DeLarosas sons both 2nd Lts. It was an incredible moment of time. Do you know if DeLarosa still around?
