In Memoriam

The muffled drums sad roll has beat
The soldier's last tattoo.
No more on life's parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few.

Salvador Mendez Sr.

Regarding my profile pic, it is a picture of my Grandfather Salvador Mendez Sr. Taken when he was approximately 21 yrs. of age in in the year 1928 in his home town Tlazazalca, Michoacan Mexico. He is pictured astride a Andalusian Stallion and wearing a .38 Colt revolver in a holster. My grandfather was a highly principled and disciplined man who could teach you how to do just about anything .The Andalusian is a Berber/Iberian mix from our family's ancestral home of Andalusia in southern Spain. The Berber/Andalusian was introduced to Spain by the invading Moors in 711AD.
These horses were loaded onto ships heading for New Spain as early as 16th century, and have  since remained in the colonial region of Mexico. The Andalusian Stallion is yesterdays equivalent of a fine European sports car.

Cinco De Mayo

This holiday relates more to the people of  Puebla , due to the fact that it celebrates their victory over French forces at the battle of Puebla, which continued to give  Mexico more autonomy from European rule.

F4U Corsair

When I was about 9-10 years old I was all about the Corsair my favorite WWII era fighter. Pappy Boyington made the Black Sheep squadron famous for shooting down Japanese Zero's at a alarming rate. I had the same picture of VMF 214 taped to my bedroom wall. The Japanese referred to this plane as whistling death because of the sound the wing intakes would make when it dove.
Power came from a 1805 hp. Pratt and Whitney 18 cylinder radial engine.
