BLYTHE - Enrique Martinez graduated from California State University, San Bernardino with a Master's Degree in Rehab counseling on June 15.
Martinez graduated from Palo Verde High School in 1989 and did a five and a half year stint with the U.S. Army where he met his wife of 23 years, Ember.
He is the son of Manuela Martinez of Ripley and the late Jesus Martinez, and the father of two sons, Jacob and Christen.
The veteran resides in Yucaipa, Calif. and is currently employed at the VA Hospital in Loma Linda.
