My dad, Saul, served in the Korean War.  He is pictured on leave with my brother Ramon (Age 2) in the Bronx, New York.  My dad passed away July 1, 2007 in Miami, Florida.  His brother, Arturo Rivera Medina, is still alive and lives in Arecibo, PR. My dad and uncle served together in the Korean War and were reunited on the front lines.
