This a historiographic narration the stories of the mejicano tejano heroes of Uvalde, a small Texas town, before and after the World War II, their contributions to the war effort, and the generations following them. Upon their return from the front, the small-town soldiers and heroes armed now with a new perspective returned as catalyst of change,  ready to engage, and transform the social, racial, and economic dynamics for mejicanos in Uvalde, Texas town they left. The author examines and describes how life changed when the men who valiantly heeded the call to arms came back home. The men fought the mighty German army in Europe at the Battle of Salerno, for the control of the Rapido River, and Mt. Rotondo in Italy. They became amply adept, when they returned home determined to improve the social and economic conditions for mejicanos, although, at first, the advancement was slow and incremental.  They did set in motion a transformation that took years to gain control of their town, and fight their local Ku Klux Klan, school board, city hall, landowners, and the power structure that oppressed them before the war. It is an American, a Texan, as well as a Latino mejicano history of duty to country, flag, struggle, and liberation.
