Major Miguel “Tito” Reece (US Air Force, Retired) has recently published the book, The Disabled Veteran’s Story. It outlines the struggles and sacrifices of veterans and their families for the world's freedom. One story includes the bureaucratic journey of a Panamanian while another story tells how Panamanians volunteered for the draft as a way out from the Silver Cities (La Boca, Red Tank, Paraiso, Gamboa, and Rainbow City), reflecting true compelling stories of the politics within the Canal Zone in the early days.
Reece, a military veteran with 30+ years of service as both an officer and an enlisted member in the US Air Force. He served in Vietnam, the Middle East, and as a member of the Stabilization Forces in the Balkans.
Born in the Panama Canal Zone, Reece has an undergraduate degree from Southern Illinois University and a graduate degree from the Webster University, Saint Louis, Missouri. After 30 years in the USAF, he served 10 years with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, with great concerns of many veterans dying prior to receiving their entitled benefits.
Reece states that he enjoyed working with veterans and making a difference in the lives of the beneficiaries. He often visited veterans with the families in their homes, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities, relatives’ homes, under bridges, in parks or even in tree houses. In his book he aspires to share these stories with the world, to educate a new generation and remind society of the sacrifices the American and some Panamanian veterans endured for the freedom of the world and not to allow their stories to be forgotten.
