   Graduate from High School.  Luis Silva who landed at Omaha Beach on D-Day, always dreamt of getting his diploma. The 90 year old veteran recieved his

   this week, 71 years after He was drafted - Officials say that He earned the credits to graduate before the war.  After the war He returned home to Belen, got

   married and raised 4 children.  He proudly watched his children, grand-children, and great grand-children graduate.  This week Mr. Silva and his great -grand

I am writing to recommend the book titled 'Sabino's Map", "Life in Chimayo's Old Plaza" by Don J. Usner, 1995.  It was recommended to me by Michael Miller, back on December 11th. A truly great book worth reading. A great History story about a time and place that most people perhaps know little about. It also has some great photos, some of Maria's Aunt Mercedes Trujillo, which she previously wrote about.  Michael thank you, once again for letting me know about this great book. Again, if you haven't read it you will enjoy it.
