    El Democrats Abroad Hispanic Caucus orgullosamente reconoce el patriotismo inigualado del Maestro Sargento Raul “Roy” P. Benavidez, condecorado con la Medalla al Honor del Congreso.

    No podemos hablar del Mes de la Herencia Hispana sin mencionar a Benavidez, una de las personas más valientes y honorables de la historia de nuestra nación. Nacido en Texas en 1935 de un padre mexicano-americano y una madre nativa yaqui, Benavidez tuvo una infancia muy dura porque se quedó huérfano siendo muy niño, y debió irse a vivir con algunos parientes.
