Rocha, a former US Navy petty officer aboard the USS Forrestal; and later as a member of the Gator Navy, an amphibious navy unit; followed by 39 years in the defense industry as an hourly process operator, motor test mechanic, and manager Pratt & Whitney Space Propulsion Division.

Rocha shares, “The country had just gone to war with Japan, and a new patriot is born in the small coastal town of New Bedford, Massachusetts. The date is January 20, 1942. Sit down and enjoy the memories of growing up as a child of the greatest generation who, as a young boy, came to understand what patriotism and love of country meant to him.

“As the years go by, take a journey with him and how he discovered a gift to write patriotic stories of paintings and photos that are found throughout the book, mixed in with his memories such as ‘Just an Old Piece of Cloth,’ ‘Woman Warrior,’ ‘The Eagle’ to name but a few and each with the photo or painting that inspired him. This is a book worth reading and sharing with friends and family.”
