I had the opportunity to personally ask Jose Hernandez to clear up some quotes he has made in the past. He stated in those articles that he is "more Mexican than American" and "has room in his heart for two countries."
To my amazement he not only said this was accurate, he said that his heritage is more Mexican than American.
I am a combat veteran that served my country in Iraq. That is how I identified myself when I met him. After letting me know that he more serves a country that is not my own, he mockingly laughed and walked away from me.
