A Forgotten Marine

My name is Ronnie Hinojosa.  I was born on Feb/19/1963 in the city of Tijuana, Mexico.  Growing up without a father was very hard for me.  While my dad was serving in Vietnam, I was homeless, living in the streets of Nayarit Mexico not knowing who my dad was.  Life to me was very cruel.  I did have no life as a kid. I was abused by my mother cause I looked like my father.  My mother hated my father cause he lied to her he never told her that he was married. So I am the one who paid for the mistakes of my father.  I only saw my father one time in my life and that was when he came back from Vietnam.  I still remembered I was like 5 or 4 years old when he just drove by the house and he did not stop. Just passed by and flag his hand. This happened in Tijuana Mexico, 3 days later my mother sent me to Nayarit, Mexico to live with my grandmother.  After that I never heard about him.

I am the son of a Marine named Tomas Hinojosa Jr.  Who went to Korea and Vietnam, and won many medals for his country.  After he retired from the Marines he went to work for the USA customs while working for the customs he died of a heart attack.  I would like to know if you can help to find pictures of my father.
