Edward Alonzo, III
MA, PMP, PMI-ACP, SPC, RTE, SA, CPM, SPP
I am a proud military brat, whose father and grandfathers served in the Army, Air Force and Navy.
One grandfather, CMSGT Moore, served in the Navy (reserves), Army, and was transitioned as part of the Air Force’s birth to become an Airman.
My other grandfather SFC Alonzo, served in Korea and Vietnam, receiving the Soldier’s Medal , Bronze Star Medal, and the Purple Heart upon his death. I’m particularly proud of his Soldier’s Medal. He ran into an armed helicopter that crashed and “burst” into flames with “ammunition and rockets … exploding sporadically.” He entered the flaming wreck, saved a trapped door gunner and then located a fire extinguisher and helped put the fire out.
Service is in my blood. For most of my adult life, I’ve served by working in ministry. Working with youth, adults, and families. In the US, mostly via evangelization; in India mostly by serving the dying destitute. I have been honored to see things so extraordinary in the darkest of places and to enjoy the simple joy of a play put on by orphans.
I have worked for and against legislation in Vermont and Connecticut before moving to Texas. Since I’ve come to Texas, I’ve become a Digital Professional and help lead a large annual Men’s Conference.
