His unit, the 517th landed in Naples Italy, fought north and deployed by air into southern France and into the "Bulge." He came back to Antioch in 1945 where it would become his home for the next 64 Years. He met Guadelupe Escarcega of Douglas, Az in Antioch in 1949 and they married on June 19, 1950.
