TRANQUILINO DELROSARIO ANCHETA

Contributor - Steffi Ward

Shown with my Dad, Tranquilino delRosario Ancheta, (Standing 2nd from left). He is 90 years old and currently in the V.A. Hospital, here in Seattle, WA. Due to negligence, he's very ill - no thanks to my mother! She wouldn't let me take this picture to have a copy produced, and she wouldn't let me borrow it so that I could scan it. I finally "stole it" off her wall last night! His patches, uniform and an assortment of things (including his firearm and 2 boxes of bullets that are dated, in the 1940's), a sword (I don't know what the significance of what the sword is, he told me once and I can't remember the story behind it - the sword does have military insignia on it), and a lot of other things, are hiding in his room. I saw some patches and several medals while I was there today (painting his bedroom). I wish I could obtain those right now and take some photographs of them, but my mother won't let me near those things. My dad is very proud of his war experience and tells the story constantly.
