"Just wanted to know I just finished reading your wonderful story about your grandfather and your extended family. Enjoyed it even more the second time. Felt even more envious because I never knew my grandfathers and didn’t have much of a relationship with my maternal grandmother. Armando’s grandmother and my paternal grandmother were sisters. Both died young, and we don't really know their stories. So glad you wrote this book. In a way it is really all our story, and I appreciate that!"
Among the Valiant
"I read your father's book as a young man and it changed my own view of myself."
"One day I noticed this small book on the lowest shelf of the U.S. history section at the library. It was 'Among the Valiant' by Raul Morin. I almost didn't open it since I had a couple of WWII Time-Life books that had lots of pictures in them. But for some reason I reached down and started to skim through your dad's book.
"A lots of thanks to Raul Morin and all those who served valiantly; they made us proud."
"My Dad, Bennie Arellano, served in WWII within a month of Raul Morin in Europe. He purchased Among the Valiant many years ago and donated it to the Santa Paula city library. He’s 81 years old and mentioned he wanted a copy. I’m glad I found your website."
"Thank you for putting my Dad’s story in your book.
"Whenever I show other veterans your Dad’s book, they want to get a copy too.
"Thank you for providing a good book for the pupil to be informed."
"I have been aware of this great book for many years but could never obtain a copy.
"We were living in East Los Angeles during the war and a lot of those names and places
"My father served under General George Patton in WWII and passed by Bastogne
Valor & Discord
Being somewhat of a history buff I have read your great book, "Valor & Discord" with much interest. You exceeded my expectations. It is a wonderful narrative of a time in Latino history where so many of our fine young men shined.
"Thank you for the book Valor & Discord. Someone had to tell our story."
"Eddie Morin has done a great service with the history of America’s Latino soldiers and Marines and brave aviators and their remarkable record of service in the Vietnam War. A couple of dozen soldiers with names like Cantu and Pena and Ledesma fought in the Ia Drang Valley battles. Their stories and the stories of many others come to life in these pages."
"I am looking forward to reading your book. I am sure that it will be as great as “Among the Valiant” by your father which was given to me by Dr. hector P. Garcia, Corpus Christi, Texas. Every time I go to Austin, Texas I drive through Lockhart and tell my family about your father and his book."
"Author Eddie Morin has written a very thoroughly documented book.
"I received the book “Valor & Discord”. The book is fantastic. You did a great job.
"Thank you for letting us know about “Valor & Discord”. I have e-mailed everyone about your book. I don’t know how you included everyone’s story and kept it in a timeline so it made sense. You did a fine job."
