Portraits of Valor; Roy Benavidez

Roy Benavidez was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions West of Loc Ninh, South Vietnam in May of 1968. When word that a squad was pinned down by enemy fire Roy Benavidez immediately volunteered to exact their rescue. During the course of the effort he subjected himself to constant enemy fire and suffered numerous injuries, but still led the remaining soldiers to protect and defend their position even after their first rescue helicopter was shot down.

His Family has a Mexican restaurant in El Paso TX. on MacGruder street, just outside of Ft Bliss. It is called Carlos and Mickey’s. They have numerous pictures of him along with the ones of him receiving the MOH from President Reagan.

Wild Thing's comment...............

This is the kind of person the young should respect and realize they are the real heroes, not people like Obama.

It was so good that Roy got his MOH presented by Reagan and not Carter or Clinton. Benavidez is gone now to that big jumpmaster in the sky.
