U.S. Air Force Veteran

American all of my life.

U.S. Army Veteran


This is the web site for Ronald Shatto. This site was created to help me with my job and to allow others to know something about me. I am a computer instructor in Springfield, Oregon. I am also a landlord with three rental houses located in Eugene and Springfield, Oregon.

I was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the fifth child of Miles T. Shatto (from Pennsylvania) and Rose De Nazareth Modesto Mendez (from Brazil). I grew up around the world. When I was less than two years old, my family moved to Italy, Libya, and Spain. I don't remember Italy and Libya but I have very fond memories of Spain. My father was a civilian Technical Representative working for the U.S. Air Force and was responsible for our frequent travels.

After five years in Spain, we moved back to Harrisburg for three years where I attended Schimmell Elementary School. We then moved to the Pacific island of Guam for six years. I attended Barrigada Junior High School (where I met my wife, Maria), George Washington High School, and took one class at the University of Guam while attending high school. Our high school had a program for seniors where if you already had 12 high school classes completed with a high enough grade average, you could attend the University instead of your afternoon high school classes.

A few months after graduating from high school I joined the Air Force and four years later I joined the Army. My military career can be seen using the links above.

My hobbies, now that I have time for them, include photography and building paper aircraft. I will continually revise my pictures section and will add a section for the paper aircraft. My wife and I are foster parents for Green Hill Humane Society. We volunteer to raise kittens until they are old enough to be adopted. The kittens are a source of joy in our lives and it is a sad day when we return them. We have actually adopted two of the kittens, Warren and Charlie.
