Federico Mendoza 1949 – 2007: Federico was always a soldier: First Vietnam, then 20 yrs. with the National Guard; finally braving his Ultimate Battle with ALS. In dying; he taught us to be brave, to have hope, to keep our faith. He taught us to see reality – not as we expect it to be but as it is. He taught us to be strong knowing there wasn’t a cure for ALS. From the bottom of my heart & all corners of my mind – an ALS Advocate In His Honor. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7
