El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Tuesday's Service Salute was sent in by Marie Solera. She wanted to honor her dad, Henry Solera.
Henry served in the U.S. Army from April 1940 to September 1945. He was stationed in Hawaii, and was at Pearl Harbor during World War II. Marie told us her dad takes his civic duties seriously and still casts his vote during election time.
Henry also has a living twin. They are both healthy at 99 years young and will celebrate 100 years in December.
Thank you Marie and Henry for being a part of our Service Salute.
