So what are Honorary Generals? They are fans of the Mexican National Soccer Team and supporters of Pancho Villa's Army who love what we are doing and have some type of National or International podium to help promote our goals. They are artists, actors, current and former professional soccer players, professional soccer coaches, and current and former Mexican National Team soccer players.
General Jose Luis Sanchez "El Chelis"
Please give a warm welcome to Profesor Jose Luis Sanchez "El Chelis" our very first Honorary General. El Chelis retweeted a Pancho Villa's Army request back in January of 2013 and for that we were extremely grateful. However, in April the L.A.. Battalion began promoting their first watch party and meeting. While promoting the watch party Pancho Villa's Army L.A.. sent a tweet to El Chelis asking him to re-tweet the information to his followers. Not only did the Chivas USA coach re-tweet our tweet he replied with an RSVP to the event. The RSVP made Pancho Villa's Army's Mexico v. Peru watch party the talk of the town. Twitter blew up with pictures of his tweets RSVPing to the watch party. Major news accounts spread the word in disbelief. On match day El Chelis sent one last tweet asking for the exact address with zip code, presumably for GPS navigation, and stated that he was coming with his entire coaching staff. As promised, El Chelis showed up and enjoyed the watch party with Pancho Villa's Army. He was a generous guest, taking pictures with fans and warmly receiving the Official 2013 ed. Pancho Villa's Army scarf. The man is a true Mexican legend and a "Caballero" above all.
