This person by the name of Fiatele Taulago Te'o was my uncle and by spirit still is my uncle. He was drafted at that time and now in American Samoa where we are from the Samoan people dedicated a recruiting center to him. It's on the island of American Samoa and it is called the Fiatele Te'o Army Recruiting Center. He was 19 years old when he passed away in combat fighting for our Red, White, and Blue.
