Major General Alfred Valenzuela

Retired 2004

From the Revolutionary War to the War on Terror, Hispanic Americans have made enormous sacrifices to protect our freedoms, and I am grateful for their service. In No Greater Love, General Valenzuela highlights the service and dedication of these brave Americans in our military.

                        -United States Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison - Texas

In this poignant work, Freddie Valenzuela uses his thirty-three years of military service as a canvas on which he paints . . . the moving story of a Hispanic American in service to his nation . . . I commend it to you as a wonderful way to explore the nature of service and the meaning of patriotism.

                                -United States Senator John S. McCain - Arizona

In March 2003, Major General Freddie Valenzuela presided over the funeral of the first casualty of the Iraq War. The young soldier was not yet a citizen of the United States, and General Valenzuela wondered what motivated him and many others like him to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country. No Greater Love answers this question and many more concerning the dedication of our servicemen and women, specifically Hispanic soldiers, in the U.S. military.
