Goya Food Company Stands Up For Veterans And Fallen Soldiers: Holding Memorial Day Event In Commemoration

Goya Foods is hosting a Memorial Day event in Texas to commemorate America’s veterans and fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, according to Fox News.

Goya Foods CEO, Bob Unanue is honoring several veterans at the event including Sgt. Marty Gonzalez last December from pre-existing wounds he sustained in Iraq 16 years ago.

Gonzalez, a native Texan, receives three purple hearts, two bronze stars and two Navy-Marine Corps Achievement Medals.

Gonzalez died because of blood clots in his lungs which were brought about due to his injuries received from deployments in Iraq.

This Memorial Day will be the first for his family without their honored hero.

From Fox News:

Other veterans will also be honored at the event, including 93-year-old U.S. Army veteran SGM Victor Lopez, who fought in the Puerto Rican regiment known as the “Borinqueneers;” U.S. Marine Corps veteran Mark “Oz” Geist, a team member of the Annex Security Team that defended the American diplomatic post and CIA annex in Benghazi; CPL Sue Downes, who lost two limbs when an antitank mine hit her humvee in Afghanistan; 101-year-old World War II veteran Stewart Morris Sr.; and USMC veteran Daniel P. Cortez.

Goya will also mount a new American flag on a 125-foot flagpole and unveil a new monument at the event on Monday.
