¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Macario Garcia!

Born January 20, 1920. Died December 24, 1972.

He was a staff sergeant who became the first Mexican immigrant to receive the Medal of Honor.

He was later denied service at a restaurant located just a few miles south of Houston because he was Mexican and then beaten with a bat by the owner. No one was arrested.
