As Interviewed by Katie T, March 23, 2019
"I think my experience in the military was something that I would've never been able to experience in civilian life, so I give it a 10. It's interesting, it's fun, and it's very, very informative and you can train for whatever you want."

Introductory Profile: About Matias B.

I interviewed my grandpa, Matias Benavidez. He is a native Texan and has lived in many places around the U.S. during his years in the military. Matias is a humorous, caring, and outgoing person who never meets a stranger. One of his favorite things to do is travel, especially road trips and camping.

The interview was a fun and interesting experience for me because I got to learn a lot about my grandfather’s past and experiences. It was cool to see pictures of him when he was younger and of him jumping out of airplanes.

Overall, learning about the military and my grandpa’s experience was really informative and cool. I learned a lot about the total experience and was told some really great stories. I definitely enjoyed creating this project.
