With the help of angels stationed in Randolph Air Force Base deep in the heart of Texas, UCLA alumnus and retired U.S. Army officer, Frank F. Montalvo sorted, packed and shipped 350 pounds of medical textbooks and journals donated by the UT Medical Library. (Ret) Lt. Col. Montalvo is an American hero! At 80 years of age, he and his wife (who he met at UCLA) finds the time and energy to do service that enriches the lives of others, including our troops and their mission.
A special salute to TSgt Tony Garcia USAF 205th RCAC Mentor in Afghanistan and SMSgt Gary Scott at Randolph Air Force Base for recruiting the AF angels who used their muscle to give the 11 boxes of books their "wings." In two weeks, the books/journals should arrive in Afghanistan. Now, that is something to smile about!
