Made with Army WWII uniforms
Inspired and designed after Nick's grandfather, Don Mendoza, who served in the United States Army during WWII. 1st LT Mendoza was serving in the Philippines, when his men were attacked by the Japanese. While his men were being treated for injuries, Don found his future wife, now deceased grandmother of Nick III, Conception Mendoza. For his courageous service to the United States military, Don motivated Nick's father, Nicanor R. Mendoza, to enlist in the United States Navy, retiring as a Corpsman Navy Chief. Nick III now holds the torch in his family as the third generation serving in the US military.
