"I’m contacting you in regards to my father who was stationed at Moron ab, Spain from 1962 to 1965 or 66. He was an ac2? In weather squadron but according to his records, he played baseball while he was there? He passed away in Feb 2016. His name was John “Jack” Wilkinson. Apparently, my father had a son with a Spanish woman while he was there. He told us that when he wanted to marry her, she would only marry him if he brought her whole family to the states. So he left them there. I’m going to assume that the story was somewhat true because my father was next stationed in Korea and married my Korean mother when she got pregnant with my sister in 1968. I believe I was about 10 years old when my parents told us about our brother. I think the lady’s name was Maria (probably half of Spain) and the boy might have been named Juan Carlos. I am searching for the information he gave me about ten years ago but can’t seem to locate it. Is there any way you could help me? Maybe someone knew him and may remember the lady or the boy? Thanks for the site about Moron. It’s interesting to read about that part of my father’s life."

Mateo passed away in July 2018
Can anyone who spent much time with my Dad in Spain tell me about what he was like back then or some of the things he did? It would be so appreciated.
