Uvalde Veterans Service Officer Everardo “Lalo” Zamora recently presented five brothers who served during the Vietnam era with a book commemorating the 50th anniversary of the war.
The book, a special limited edition Texas version of “A Time to Honor: Stories of Service, Duty, and Sacrifice,” is furnished to veterans courtesy of Governor Greg Abbott.
Texas is home to 1.7 million veterans, and approximately half a million of those served in Vietnam.
The book details heroic actions and sacrifices made in Vietnam, chronicles events of the time and pays tribute to all who served in Vietnam.
Uvaldean Ricardo S. Benavidez says that though he and his four brothers are now enjoying retirement, they still vividly remember serving in the military during the Vietnam era.
The brothers grew up in Eagle Pass on Williams Street, sons of Eloisa (Cantu) and Matias Benavidez.
