Maj. Gen. Frederick Padilla, president of the National Defense University at Fort McNair, Washington, D.C., gives a keynote address during the National Hispanic Heritage Month Luncheon hosted by Marine Corps Systems Command Oct. 13, at The Clubs at Quantico. Padilla, whose father was an officer in the U.S. Air Force and whose grandfather served in the Army during World War I, shared the story of how his grandparents came to live in America. “My story is not unique,” Padilla said. “It’s an American story. We all have an American story.” Padilla also talked about Marine Staff Sgt. Riayan Tejeda, who was killed in combat in Iraq in 2003, and posthumously granted U.S. citizenship.
