We Happy Few

Serving an Adopted Homeland

In this episode, Jason Comstock talks with Daniel and Angie Bucio about his service in the U.S. Navy Reserves. Dan immigrated to the United States from Mexico after his family learned that his grandfather was a U.S. citizen and had served in World War II. Like many Americans, Dan felt a desire to serve his adopted homeland after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He’s served all over the world, but his first deployment came in 2014 when he was deployed to Northern Africa, with responsibilities that took him all over Northern Africa and the Middle East. Like most service members, deployment had a profound impact on Dan and his family.

The Bucios are learning to embrace their “new normal” and haven’t shied away from challenges – old and new – that they’ve faced.
