Capt. Francisco Pinero was a T-37 instructor pilot at Reese AFB, next to Lubbock, TX. Francisco and his wife welcomed us (me and my wife) to the base, I think it was on a sunday. They took us to lunch as part of the welcome activity to Reese. I always remember he exhorted me to learn how to play golf. I was told that he died flying the F-16 on a night mission. I was at UPT at that time. I remember Francisco as a friendly dedicated professional serving his Country. He was born in Humacao, PR.

Frankie and I were classmates at Cardinal Spellman, H.S., in the Bronx, New York. He was a good friend to all that knew him and always had a contagious smile. I still remember the day that his brother called to tell me the terrible news.....and how our classmates gathered together to remember him at Mass at Holy Rosary Church. Many years have passed.....sweet memories, followed by sad ones...... but I can still see his great smile. Thank you Frank for being part of our lives, and please know that you are STILL a part of the Spellman family. As we approach our 35th anniversary reunion, we want the family to know that Frank's name and photo grace our memorial with each reunion.......we toast you Frankie and keep you in our hearts and prayers. God rest in peace.

Frank was a very good friend of mine. We spent three years together in Cadet Squadron 31 at the USAFA.

I still miss him and all the other classmates from our Class of 1977.
