Memorial Day 2012

In honor of Memorial Day, I'm sharing photos of a statue I came across in Cuero, Texas earlier this year.

The statue commemorates Master Sergeant Raul (Roy) Perez Benavidez, who received the Medal of Honor for actions in combat during the Vietnam War.

 I did not know of the life and times of this remarkably heroic man until I looked up more information about him on the internet.

Hope you all have a peaceful day, wherever you are.

Cuero, Texas
