Cuban-American Hero Nominated for Congressional Medal of Honor
Here at Babalu we paid tribute to this hero during Memorial-Day week-end.
Now Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen seeks Congress' honor for this bona-fide national hero.
Washington, D.C. --- Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a senior member of the Florida Congressional delegation, is proud to be introducing a bill that would award the Congressional Medal of Honor (posthumously) to Captain Felix Sosa-Camejo from the State of Florida. Ros-Lehtinen believes that this bill will justly recognize Captain Sosa-Camejo for his heroic actions during the Vietnam War.
The legislation would request that the President award the Congressional Medal of Honor to Captain Felix Sosa-Camejo for his gallant actions during the Vietnam War, which ultimately lead to his death in combat on February 13, 1968. The American Legion Post #346 Felix Sosa-Camejo in Miami-Dade County proudly bears the name of this courageous warrior.
Married to a veteran of the Vietnam War, Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen is familiar with the dedication, loyalty, strength, and courage our troops possess in times of war, and the sacrifices they endure for this nation.
Said Ros-Lehtinen, “U.S. veterans serve this country selflessly by sacrificing themselves for the good of the nation. We have a duty to the troops who fight for our freedom and liberty and that duty consists of assuring they have the best medical care after they retire from service, opportunities to good paying jobs and making sure that brave and valiant actions, such as those of Captain Sosa-Camejo, are recognized. I urge my colleagues to support this bill and help us honor all the men and women in uniform because by honoring the heroism of all”
