EDINBURG, TX – The City of Edinburg earned a special title in 2010, after former governor Rick Perry referred to the City of Edinburg as the ‘Hometown of Heroes,’ because it is the hometown of two Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, Sgt. Alfredo “Freddy” Gonzalez and Pvt. Pedro Cano, who both received the congressional and Texas legislative medals of honor. Edinburg was also the home of 87 Fallen Heroes that served from World War I to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Countless other brave men and women also served in the various branches of our armed forces. 

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The City of Edinburg will safely honor our Veterans by hosting a Virtual Veterans Day Parade on November 11th, 2020. The event will stream live at 10 a.m. on the City of Edinburg Cable Network 1300 and the City of Edinburg Facebook page. The virtual parade will consist of Edinburg resident veterans’ photographs that were submitted by family and friends in October. 

The City of Edinburg will also be unveiling a 20×60 mural showcasing a veteran saluting the American flag. The mural represents all the military branches and encompasses respect, loyalty, and patriotism. The mural, painted by Sandra Urie, will be located on the east side of the Edinburg Fire Station 3 building.

Dolia Gonzalez, the mother of Medal of Honor Recipient Alfredo “Freddy” Gonzalez, will be presented a Certificate of Honor for her son’s courage, strength, and dedication.

Date: Wednesday, November 11, 2020

Time: 10:00 a.m.
