" II Texas--forever proud of its heroes of the glorious past--lacks not in present- day heroes, among whom is Master Sergeant Roy P. Benavidez (Ret.) of El Campo who performed some of the most spectacular acts of bravery under fire in the Vietnam War. For his heroism he received the nation's highest honor for personal valor, The Medal of Honor, presented by President Reagan earlier this year. The Texas Press Association will present to him, with gratitude and pride, its most prestigious honor, The Texan of the Year Award, during speeial ceremonies at the association's 102nd summer convention June 26 in Fort Worth. Sergeant Benavidez will be the 12th Texan in the association's long history to be so honored. Benavidez will be accompanied to Fort Worth for the June 26th event by his wife, 1,ala, and their three children, Denise, 14, Yvette, II and Noel, 8. Participating in the ceremony will be TPA past president, Fred Barbee, publisher of the El Campo Leader- News, and TPA's current president, James Roberts, publisher of the An- drews County News in Andrews. Over 4O0 Texas publishers, families and guests will be on hand for the red, white and blue event at the Cowtown's new Hyatt Regency Hotel. Benavidez, though retired after spending 22 years in the U.S. Army, is now spending most of his time talking to youth groups and schools, promoting pride in this nation and trying to rekin- dte"good, old-fashioned pa triotism." Benavidez has never lacked this par- ticular patriotism, as ribbon upon rib- bon on his uniform attest. The act directly responsible for his receiving The Medal of Honor was his remarkable courage, physical stamina and selfless determination to save a 12- man Special Forces Reconnaissance Team, all of which had been caught in ambush on a jungle battlefield in 1968 in South Vietnam. Benavidez was with the 5th Special Forces (Green Berets) Group. He alone volunteered to try for what seemed to be an impossible rescue--and was wounded again and again, but managed to pull at least eight of his comrades, some also woun- ded, from enemy fire and get them into a second pickup aircraft which flew them to safety. The first helicopter, directed to the area by Benavidez, had been shot down by the enemy. Most Medals of Honor are given in the field or immediately thereafter. But in the aftermath of Benavidez actions, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Army's second highest decoration. However, a number of years later, when buddies--and Publisher Barbee-- recalled his special heroism, they pushed for the highest. It took a few months, but when buddy after buddy stepped forward to hail Benavidez as their life-saver under the most dangerous circumstances, Reagan, in an emotional presentation earlier this year, presented him Honor. The President in recounting the entire jungle heroism and read Medal of Honor citation.
