Dr. Carlota Ayala-Ortega sits proudly by as husband Guadalupe Ortega recalls his memories from World War II.
Guadalupe recalls the time the owner of a museum learned of his many medals earned in combat, and told him "I'll make a hero out of you."
Guadalupe quickly answered, "I am a hero, I have been for years, and I don't tell anybody."
Ortega smiles and nods her head in agreement.
Many would say she’s a hero in her own right.
