Espanoles, Tejanos, Mexicanos and Mexican-Americans have been defending the land north of the Rio Grande since before Texas was a Republic or part of the Union. The children of these original settlers have fought valiantly at the Alamo, during The Civil War, The Spanish-American War, World War I and II, and all of America's recent conflicts. This episode is a small tribute to Latino war veterans.
