Colorado Reader:The military provides for citizenship once the
member completes his/her obligatory service. Once he's been granted his,
his family can move to the head of the line in applying for theirs. It's a
good system. I've seen many who immigrated in this fashion.
Congratulations to mom. You made tough decisions and worked hard to raise your
wonderful children in a difficult and unforgiving world. Your efforts, your
faith and ultimately your success should be applauded. The world is better
because your kids are in it, and your kids are who they are because of you.
Way to go, brother! God bless you and your family! Hooah!
Give this family citizenship! We need more just like them! I am proud to be a
Hillcrest grad )Class of '83) when I read stories like this! Congrats to
this fine young man!
Thank you for sharing this. I especially appreciated his comment that "we
make the world a better place one person at a time." A virtuous life is its
own reward.And kudos to the mother who has instilled values and a
solid work ethic in her children in such a narcisstic, material based
society!All the best
Nice article, Amy. Well done. Best wishes to this good American family.
A great message of hope, gratitude, and what's really important in this
Inspiring story!We are blessed to live in this country and to have
immigrants who are such highly motivated people. Blessings to this
What an outstanding young man and family. I wish every graduation could feature
such a speech and story. It reminds everyone of all we have to be grateful for.
