Medal of Honor nominee Sgt. Santiago Erevia was born in Nordheim, Texas, in 1946. He volunteered to join the U.S. Army in San Antonio when he was 22-years-old. Then-Spc. 4 Erevia distinguished himself May 21, 1969, while serving as a radio-telephone operator during a search-and-clear mission near Tam Ky City, in the Republic of Vietnam. In 1970, Erevia left active service with a two year reserve obligation. In 1972 he joined the Texas National Guard and went on to serve 17 years. (Source army.mil) (AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)
