Sgt. Francisco Ledesma on Army Values and Hispanic Heritage
Sgt. Francisco Ledesma, Laboratory Technician NCO, is currently deployed with the 228th CSH to Kuwait. As a Mexican American family loyalty was is taught to you at a young age. So your brother and sister in arms become your family and the bond you have with your battles is strong. Joseph Castro, Jose Lopez, Eduardo Gomez, Roy Benavidez, and Leroy Petry are 5 of the 60 Medal of Honor Recipient are of Hispanic descent. We are Conquers, Warriors, Valente and Brave. Besides being a Soldier, being a Mexican American is one of the most important aspect in my character. From Food, Language, Culture and Art, I couldn't be more proud.
