Today's Houston Memory Card (see this post for details) is about my dad's three brothers . . . my Uncle Jesse, my Uncle Johnny and my Uncle Tom. It reads "My uncles on my dad's side were all men in uniform - Uncle Jesse and Uncle Tom served in the Houston police force and Uncle Johnny was a special delivery messenger with the U.S. post office." I'll make a scrapbook layout about them when I get back in town because there's much more to the story. In fact, my Uncle Jesse was only the second Mexican American police officer for the city of Houston. He served honorably for 33 years! You can read more of his story in this post at my cousin Irene's blog.
Well, I just go back into town and wanted to update this post before it goes "live" because while visiting my brother (who lives in my parents' former home), he gave me two more boxes of heritage family photos he recently found! I thought I had them all and had them all organized, but now I've got more work to do. Oh well, it's worth it because I found some real treasures, like this one which goes with today's post:
That's my Uncle Tom on the left and my Uncle Jesse on the right.
Are there any men in uniform in your family tree?
