Celebrating Hiroshi Miyamura

We want to celebrate Asian-Pacific Heritage Month by recognizing the life and service of hero, and native New Mexican, Hiroshi Miyamura.  

Born and raised in Gallup, Hiroshi volunteered to be part of the 100th Infantry Battalion, in 1945. After the end of WWII, he enlisted in the US Army Reserves and was recalled to active duty in 1950 at the start of the Korean War.

For his acts of incredible valor in Korea, Hiroshi was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Eisenhower.

He is a hero to the United States, and to our great state.

As we celebrate Mr. Miyamura, we must also recognize the rise of discrimination and hate crimes against Asian-Americans in our community. His story has to remind us why the fight against injustice must continue.

Asian-American history is New Mexico history.
