New Mexico Hometown Heroes: Hispanic Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients

November 8, 2018January 14, 2019

The New Mexico Hometown Heroes: Hispanic Congressional Medal of Honor Recipients exhibit is a tribute to the six Hispanic Congressional Medal of Honor recipients who have received the highest honor that the United States government bestows for acts of valor and heroism. It celebrates not only their stories of service but their connections to New Mexico: Private Joseph Martínez (WWII), Private José Valdez (WWII), Master Sergeant Alejandro Ruíz (WWII), Specialist Fourth Class Daniel Fernandez (Vietnam War), Chief Warrant Officer Louis Rocco (Vietnam War) Master Sergeant Leroy Petry (Operation Enduring Freedom).

This exhibition of photographs, narratives, and ephemera allows us to reflect on the sacrifices of those who served, and those who follow in their footsteps.

It is on display in the NHCC History and Literary Arts building. You can find the hours for that building here.
