Michael “Mike” Pastor is a lifelong resident of Globe-Miami, although now he lives in Globe.  Born at the old M&I Hospital on the hill and raised in Miami, Mike graduated from Miami High School…Class of 66.


While attending ASU, Mike was drafted into the US Army in 1971 during the annual lottery drawing to serve during the Vietnam conflict.  He was directly sent to Fort Ord California for Basic and AIT Training in MSO 64C20 Military Transportation Operations, Heavy Duty Truck Driver.  His company was assigned to Germany upon completion of training.  Mike and three other soldiers were sent to White Sands, New Mexico for assignment to SAFEGUARD Systems and White Sands Missile Range.  After 4-months, Mike was assigned to the Kwajalein Missile Range in the South Pacific.  After a 13-month tour, Mike returned to White Sands and was honorably discharged.


Returning to Miami, Mike took advantage of his GI Bill benefits and attended Gila Community College, beginning a long relationship with our college as a student, Governing Board Member, and now as the Workforce Training Director.  Mike has been married to Linda for 44 years and has 2 adult children and 8 grandchildren. 


Mike likes to tell folks “although he was drafted and not happy about it, he looks back on his military career and believes it was the foundation for setting him on the positive career path he has experienced since leaving the military in 1972”.
