Seguin and Guadalupe County have untold numbers of men and women who served in the military and many of them have retired from their military careers. Every month, 10 or 12 of our military retirees and veterans get together for breakfast.

A number of them are World War II veterans, one of which is Al Machaud, a close friend who served in the Pacific. Another is Jim Ulbrich, a retired Seguin High School Teacher and World War II Navy veteran. One man, K. (Kenneth) P. Platt, formerly of Seguin, is a survivor of the Pearl Harbor bombing. The rest of us are retired military who served in the Korean or Vietnam wars.

Floyd McKee is a native of Seguin. He is a retired Air Force Colonel and eight of his ancestors were among the 33 Rangers that organized and developed Walnut Springs and Seguin.
