Cattaneo is called to serve the United States, but the value of military service was instilled in him by his grandfather, a musician in the Argentinean army.
“My grandfather taught me about the honor of serving your country,” said Cattaneo. “I’ve been so fortunate to have him attend some of my graduations and promotions.”
Cattaneo is proud to be an American Airman because of the opportunities the United States offers.
“It’s amazing how much is available here,” said Cattaneo. “I love the toy stores because growing up in Argentina, you couldn’t just go get even a simple toy, and much less the little drones they [children] fly around now.”
Toy stores aren’t the only opportunities Cattaneo is proud America offers.
“I think the special observances – like Hispanic Heritage month or Asian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month – are so important,” said Cattaneo. “They celebrate one of the best things about the United States. We have so many different people from different cultures and we share these cultures. Everyone has something different to bring to the table.”
