Rod A. Galindo arrived on Earth in the Spring of 1970. He’s been trying to stay out of trouble ever since, but has now accepted that finding it is one of the three things he does well, right behind drawing and right ahead of spelling. He's beamed all around the world thanks to various military and government positions, but proudly calls Kansas City home. Mainly because his request for transfer to Stargate Command was denied. AGAIN.
"Major Galindo" has nearly thirty years of service under his belt in the U. S. Army, both Active Duty as an enlisted M-1A1 Abrams tank crewman in Operation Desert Storm, and in the Kansas Army National Guard as a Field Artillery cannoneer and officer. He served in Operation Noble Eagle (as a Platoon Leader on a homeland security mission), in Operation Iraqi Freedom (as a Battle Captain in Baghdad, Iraq), and in Operation Inherent Resolve (first as a Division Plans Officer and later as a Forward Logistical Base Commander/Mayor in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan).
"Rod Galindo" is a worn-out father of four; two cyber-smart teenage boys, one German Army (Bundeswehr) Soldatin who is as dangerously clever as she is beautiful, and he fills in as full-time father to a special young lady who never really had a dad to call her own.
Rod is a fully assimilated and very active member of the Wordwraiths Writing Collective and Wordwraith Books, LLC (learn more about our authors and books at Wordwraiths.com). Enjoy his shiny art or delve into his literary musings at RodWerks.net or RodGalindo.com.
A DUEL TO THE DEATH!
(Or at least until dinner)
Here are my little Younglings playing with their dangerous laser toys. Awww.
This was a whole LOT of years ago. Both Killian and Neo have graduated to full Padawan status now. Not to mention teenage-hood. :)
YET ANOTHER DUEL TO THE DEATH!
This was after a few fingers and hard-fought battles were lost. But a lot of lessons were learned. And as often happens, one of them -- Neo in this case -- went all "bad guy" red saber on us.
Oh how I wish they were still that little. :(
BEWARE CAPTAIN ARIELLE HOOK!
She'll rip the stupid right out of you and replace it with good ol' German common sense!
I just noticed how violent all my children are.
Looks like my job as der Vater ist complete.
