My maternal grandfather's name was George Munteanu. He came from the city of Iasi, in eastern Romania near the border of Moldavia. He immigrated to the United States in 1906. He married Theresa Robbins, and they had two daughters. One was my mother. My grandfather entered the US Army and eventually became the Commander of the Presidio in San Francisco, California, with the rank of full colonel. He passed away in 1955, in San Francisco, California.
