Prayers of a Small Town Tex-Mex Kid

Childhood Memories

Prayers of a Baptist Tex-Mex

I was a God-fearing Christian as a child. Not because my parents forced their religion on me. They didn’t even go to church, or even cared if we went.


Keesler’s “Goodbyes and Friends” unearthed

Childhood Memories

After leaving Air Force basic training in San Antonio, I spent the next ten months of my six year enlistment at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi. There I would be taught my AFSC, Air Force Specialty Code: the art of maintaining, repairing, and installing air traffic control and weather radar. Those days of waking up at 4:30am, shining boots, throwing on the BDU’s, lining up in formation to the sound of reveille, then grabbing breakfast at the chow hall before marching to class, seem more like a movie than a chapter of my own life.
