Ortega Family's Honors and Awards!

Thanks so much Cathy and Congratulations to Freddie, Joan, Griffin and all the rest!!!

Hi CP: We have been so busy the past few days that I haven't been able to send you some great photos for your blog.

The first one is of Fred and Joan Nobile Ortega's Family, whose grandson, Griffin, was honored at the Veteran's Day Memorial Ceremony at McCambridge.

The second photo is of Griffin receiving his plaque and street banner from Ana Reinke, Mayor of Burbank.

Here is the info Joan gave me:

Griffin Michael Turner is Mike and Nikki's son. He is 22, will be 23 in January. He joined the USMC upon graduation from Pacifica High School in 2006. He did two tours of Iraq during his service and was honorably discharged this past June. The flag which he was awarded today flew along Third Street during his service years as part of Burbank's service recognition program.
