The City of Edinburg is know as the Home of Heroes, not only because it is the hometown of two Congressional Medal of Honor recipients, Sgt. Alfredo “Freddy” Gonzalez and Pvt. Pedro Cano, as well as 87 other Fallen Heroes that served from World War I to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, but also for the countless other brave men and women who have served in the various branches of our armed forces. Many serving our country bravely then coming home and continuing to serve the community.
