Army Reserve Spc. Luz Hernandez, who is currently deployed to Camp Buehring, Kuwait, with the South El Monte, California, based 155th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, shares a moment with her parents, Angel Hernandez Mendoza and Maria Guadalupe Lopez- Hernandez. Hernandez said she draws strength from her parents’ legacy. “I am sure there are Mexican heroes, but for me, it was just hearing my dad's and my mom's stories—how they came from nothing in Mexico.” (Photo courtesy of Spc.
