                                   Felix Longoria
   13 June 2006
    THREE RIVERS, Texas - A soldier whose burial some
    60 years ago became a symbol of Mexican-American
    civil rights will be remembered with a historical
    roadside marker. The Texas Historical Commission
    unanimously approved the marker on June 9, 2006, for
    Private Felix Z. Longoria. The Three Rivers soldier was
    killed in action in the Philippines in 1945.
   According to his family, a funeral home in the South
    Texas town refused to hold his funeral services
    because he was Hispanic. Many in town dispute this,
    saying a wake was refused because of a disagreement
    in the Longoria family.
   Dr. Hector P. Garcia, who founded the American G.I.
    Forum, and then-U.S. Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of
    Texas intervened, and Longoria was buried in
    Arlington National Cemetery.
   Santiago Hernandez, of a local G.I. Forum, led the
    effort to get the marker, saying the incident became a
    catalyst for other civil rights issues. Hernandez is
    working to get the Three Rivers post office renamed in
    Longoria's honor, but the issue has stalled in
    Congress.
