In 1951, Victor joined the National Guard and stayed until his retirement in 1991 as Chief Warrant Officer.
Victor enjoyed his duties with the National Guard.
He was in his forties when he went to jump school at Ft Benning, and quickly became a Jump Master.
Skilled with small arms fire, he was on the Guards National Pistol team.
He was stationed with Units in Rosenberg, Houston, Ellington Field, and finally at the Military Academy, Camp Mabry, Austin, TX.
He once said, “our life belongs to others as much as it belongs to us, so we should not pursue an occupation solely for the love of money or fame, but because we thoroughly enjoy doing it for the love of God”.
Victor married Juliana Wleczyk and had four children: Anthony Macha, Carmen Reno (Jimmy), Stephen Macha and Rita Macha. His grandchildren are Justin Macha, Jill Simpson (Geoff), Travis Reno (Amy), Shayne Macha (Tracy), Shelby Macha (Jordan), and Morgan Macha, and numerous nieces and nephews and cousins.
In 1981, Victor was the coordinator of the Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at Holy Rosary Church in Rosenberg.
Because of his strong love for the Blessed Sacrament, he spent many happy hours in that chapel each week.
In 1982, he began his trips, pilgrimages to many holy places throughout the world.
His favorite and most visited was Garabandal Spain, a site of Marian Apparitions.
His stories and photos about all of these Holy places made his listeners feel as though they were there.
Victor peacefully passed into eternity on August 16, 2019.
