I served in the Army during the same period as SSG Torres-Perez (TP) and we were members of the Korean War Veterans Association(KWVA). SSG TP always gave 100%. His KWVA uniform was a proud example of the excellence in which he served. I am so grieved that we didn't know of his passing and wish his family our condolences. He was an honorable soldier who gave back after leaving the Army. He will be missed. Godspeed.

Rick,

You always had a way to make me smile no matter what kind of mood I was in.
Your heart was wider than the ocean spans. Always so generous in any way you could help someone in true need you never hesitated to lend a loving helping hand.
Your kind words I will always remember.
Rest peacefully!
