S3productions flag retirement
My original US Navy retirement flag which hung in my classroom for 12 years will be retired today and be replaced with flag number 2. Several of my veteran friends will join me to share stories about their service, and in general just to enjoy the moment.
I wanted to share this moment with my friends because we could and we did
Flag Number 1 which I started its journey in 2000 1 year prior to my retirement will be placed into a storage unit until the time comes when I will be available to personally fly it at some future locations.
We wanted to say a special thank you to Armando Sanchez for hosting the show, Mary Ann Richmond for joining her flag to the adventure, Scott Frees the GOTO guy for everything. Chloe, Tom, John, Randy, Andy for joining us because we could.

(139) John Adame and Raymond Ramirez US Army Veterans
Today I am back at the Whittier Museum talking to John Adame 9th Infantry and Raymond Ramirez, 173 rd Airborne Brigade to sort of do part of a show we did a couple of weeks ago. Since that show I have doing some research and reading and I just wanted to let both of these Gentleman tell some more of their stories. I also want Mr. Ramirez to share some of his stoires in trying to reach out to fellow veterans. Both Gentlemen are Vietnam Veterans who went on to do other things in their lives.
Should be fun to do some story telling
I would be remiss if i did not say THANK YOU to the Whittier Museum , Whittier museum for letting me use their facillites
(137) Facebook friends, Flag flying Colorado Springs
The Joy of having Friends on Facebook THANK YOU to Jenn Zerfas for displaying my Flag over Colorado Springs after climbing the "incline", and to Tony Barnes who helped set this up.
This is just so cool to see this again THANK YOU to both of you
I have done a couple of Shows with Tony Barnes and it was through him that somehow I connected via the cloud with Jenn Zerfas, Who then ran my flag up to the Manitou Incline and took a picture
Another stop on that flags Journey to all kinds of places
I did 6.5 years in the Army (99-06). Kosovo Jan 2001- April 2001.
Married with two kids (ages 2 and 3 years old).
I work in medical boards at Evans Army Community Hospital on Fort Carson. I help process paperwork and help Soldiers transition out of the military due to medical conditions. I have been working at the hospital for almost 12 years
I run up the mountains for sanity, Exercise. Accomplishments. To see the beauty at the top of the world. Serenity. Pushing myself to go 2000 + feet in the climb straight up the mountain is vigorous. I do it purely for the intense workout and some alone time. The view at the top is breath taking. I am my best motivator and I have to remember that. I respect the mountains and I love the peace that I get when I do this. It humbles me every time I get to the top. I never get tired of doing the incline at Manitou.

WALTER DOMINGUEZ, Latino award winning filmmaker
Being a CTE Teacher in my other life I hear all the time about students who are going to leave high school and immediately make the “Big Time $$$$” in some field of Entertainment and so today I wanted to talk to someone who has actually “been there, done that”. I give full credit for borrowing the show descriptions from my friends at Armando F. Sanchez productions and for the Information Provided by Walter’s Public Relations People
In our fast-paced, chaotic world, it is difficult (if not impossible) to imagine the lives of those who came before us, even just two generations ago. And yet, more than ever, each of us still has a yearning to connect with the past, to better understand those who came before us and made us who we are.
That is the journey undertaken by filmmaker Walter Dominguez in the extraordinary documentary “Weaving the Past: Journey of Discovery.”
As a young man, Dominguez was inspired by his grandfather, Emilio, known as “Tata,” who was one of the most prominent and beloved Mexican Methodist ministers in idyllic Santa Paula in rural Southern California. A community leader who was known for his generous heart and kind spirit, Tata died in 1973. Three decades later, with the generation that knew Tata best quickly dying away, Dominguez picked up his camera to uncover the long-hidden secrets of Tata’s earliest years.
Walter brings to this award-winning film his unique sensibility as a storyteller and his perspective as an American Latino. Walter’s skills are a result of his extensive background as a director, assistant director, 2nd unit director, writer and producer in Hollywood studio features, television series, independent features.
Veterans Monument , Druding Park San Jacinto CA.
Just a small park in the city of San Jacinto, California that I wanted to try an experiment, and Present my flag. I found a very small yet very interesting little park dedicated to the veterans of San Jacinto. Druding Park even has a memorial to one of the town’s fallen Vietnam heroes, Joseph Patrick “Joey” Pink.
There is a memorial to all the services, Air Force has the B-17 Propeller, USMC has the Globe and Anchor, US Navy has an Anchor from the USS Cleveland LPD-7, US Coast Guard has a Light House and of Course the US Army has its tank.
Two special Memorials include the Bell from the SS Cape Johnson, and a Marker and Flags for the POW-MIA.
Of Course being of Inquisitive mind a couple of Questions arose
Why the USS Cleveland and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
Wasn’t there a USS San Jacinto ?
Why the B17 Prop and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
Why the SS Cape Johnston and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
Why the Tank and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
There seemed to be some question has what kind of tank it is?
I will leave these questions for my listeners to help me solve.
A Special Shout out to Allan Stringer who went with me on this little adventure

(131) Riverside National Cemetery with Jim Ruester
Today I am the Riverside National cemetery with Jim Ruester. We are flying US Flags for (1) US Army Captain Colin Fulbright, (2) the Los Angeles Maritime Museum, and of course (3) my flag .This adventure was a specific request of Colin Fulbright when he mailed me his flag to me and I hope to do him Justice .
Riverside National Cemetery is the third-largest cemetery managed by the National Cemetery Administration, and since 2000 has been the most active in the system based on the number of interments. It was established in 1976 through the transfer of 740 acres from March Air Force Base, which during World War II was called the U.S. Army's Camp William G. Haan. The cemetery was dedicated and opened for burials Nov. 11, 1978. An additional 181 acres was transferred by the Air Force in 2003.
Monuments and Memorials
Riverside National cemetery is home of the Medal of Honor Memorial and one of four sites recognized as a National Medal of Honor Memorial Site. The Medal of Honor Memorial, whose walls feature the names of all medal recipients, is located at the third traffic circle in the cemetery. It was dedicated in 1999.
The Fallen Soldier/Veterans' Memorial, erected in 2000, is dedicated to all service members who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. The dramatic bronze structure topped by a lifeless soldier is located near the lake at the entrance to the cemetery.
The Prisoner of War/Missing in Action National Memorial was designated as a national memorial by the U.S. Congress in 2004 through Public Law 108-454. The memorial was dedicated on September 16, 2005. Vietnam veteran Lewis Lee Millett, Jr., sculpted the bronze statue which depicts an American serviceman on his knees with hands bound by his captors. The statue is surrounded by black marble pillars that evoke imprisonment.
I was looking a book to read and some one recommened "Sweeps" by Stephen Brown. The first Book of a series invloving Ensign Samuel Wallace and his adventures on board Minesweepers. After serving on three different minesweeps I could not resist the chance to read a book about minesweeps (which by the way are very hard to find)
I just ordered the next two books "Track of the Teasure" and "Wrath of the Eagle"
