I am Dianna (Sena) Aragon. I am the wife of John Danny Aragon. I would like to honor my husband John (Dan) Aragon, his father Arsenio Aragon; his uncle Felipe Aragon and Felipe Aragon’s grandson, Joel Felipe Aragon. All of these Aragon men served in the military.

John (Dan) Aragon was instrumental in starting the Avondale, Boone, and Pueblo County Veterans Foundation. He served as Founder and President for eighteen (18 years). John was so very, very proud of this organization. His wife Dianna and sons are continuing on with his legacy. This Foundation was one of the many organizations that John (Dan) determined was important to the Avondale, Boone and Pueblo County families. The mission of this foundation is: "Our mission is to honor all veterans of Pueblo County and beautify our community. We want to educate our children of the importance of Veterans and show them Freedom is not Free."

Left to right is Felipe Aragon and his brother Arsenio Aragon.

Joe Philip Aragon, U. S. Marine.

All of these Aragon men served their country with honor and dignity.

I salute all of my husband’s Aragon family members, and my Sena family.

Subject: The Sena – Martin Serrano Military Men

Our Hernan Martin Serrano family came as soldiers to New Mexico with the Don Juan de Onate Expedition in 1598. Hernan Martin Serrano (1556-aft 1626) Sargento Mayor, Captain. His first wife was Juana Rodriguez and he was also with Dona Inez (Tano Indian). I don't know if he was married to her. There are no records of this marriage.

Our family has continued to follow in the legacy of their ancestors. As well as many of the Martin Serrano descendants.

All of these men served in the military with honor and dignity.

I salute all of these men and all of my Martin Serrano family members. God Bless America and God Bless our Military.
