Rod A. Galindo holds a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Kansas, and is a worn-out father of four. Two of his offspring are cyber-smart teenaged boys to whom he goes for all technical quandaries, one is a sharp-witted German Army (Bundeswehr) Soldatin who is as dangerously clever as she is beautiful, and he fills in as full-time father to a sweet, special, social butterfly who never really had a dad to call her own. He calls Kansas City home because his request to transfer to Stargate Command in Colorado was denied. Again.
“Major” Galindo (retired) has nearly thirty years of service under his belt in the U. S. Army, both Active Duty and in the Kansas Army National Guard. On Active Duty he was stationed in Garlstedt, Germany and Fort Hood, Texas as an enlisted M-1A1 Abrams tank crewman, and served in Operation Desert Storm in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq. In the National Guard he served first as an enlisted Artillery Cannoneer and then as a Field Artillery officer during Operation Noble Eagle in Kansas, Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq, and Operation Inherent Resolve in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
