Fred as I live and breath, my god son where your hair go? Last time I heard from you was on the phone back in 77 if I recall. Couple days after we spoke some policeman called asking about you! Glad they didn't find ya! How the hell you been?
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.
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?
