It is very clear you were not born and raised in Socorro. Those of us who grew up together, and knew everyone de Socorro Viejo, Moon City, Cowboy Park, Buford and Rio Vista, and all the ranchitos. We were small, but very UNITED. Manny was not a an academic scholar, or was in sports, but he WAS one of us..........a native SOCORRENO. I feel sorry for anyone who would try to tarnish his name and all the other veterans de Socorro and this GREAT COUNTRY. Maybe you should try join the miltary and get some discipline, motivation and direction on your life. MANNY is and will always be one of us!

Well said. Most of the people in this forum couldn't carry his jockstrap. I know the are well because I used to take my girlfriend to Moon City at night to make out. I was always hoping that she would take the name of that village literally, but she never did and I never got more than a kiss from her. But anyway, this is a well deserved honor and we should all be thankful for men like him.

You have one hell of a way of showing your appreciation to other veterans, if you served at all. I'll bet you were refused entry for your incompetence and your insolence. If you really served, name the ship and rank of your military career.

I really like your whole free wheeling, free swinging attitude. Do you think you'd be interested in going to this new nudie club? You would have to strip down butt naked in order to come.

You are in the Naval reserves? I'm not going to answer your questions, then because I only recognize active duty servicemen.
