Since the inception of this country Latinos have fought in every major war from outside and from within. Hispanics have received more Medals of Honor than any other identifiable ethnic group and have consistently received awards for heroism out of proportion to the actual population of Hispanics. These sculpture represents the token that many families receive in the form of a medal in exchange for the life of their loved one.
