Back in 1963 the Air Force had a train in Vaughn. Garda met a handsome, young Sergeant and 3 days later they eloped in Juarez, Mexico; 2 months later on December 7, 1963 they were again married at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Vaughn. They went on to have 2 daughters, Yvette and Vanessa.
Don, being in the AF, took them to Wyoming, California, New York, Alaska and New Mexico. While Don did tours in Thailand and Korea, Garda held the home front down.
