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), Daniel Fernandez (Vietnam War), Master Sergeant Alejandro Ruíz (WWII), 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.
The exhibit will remain open between November 8, 2018 and January 7, 2019
