Col John S “R.I.P.” Ford Camp, Harlingen
Robert Vela HS Army JROTC Awards, Edinburg

Camp Adjutant Bruce Kidd presented the Col Santos Benavides Heritage Award to Cadet Captain Jared E Sanchez.
This award is presented to a cadet of Hispanic heritage who demonstrates exceptional character and scholastic achievement for the year.
The award is designed to recognize the contributions of Tejanos to the Cause of the Confederacy and especially Colonel Santos Benavides, commander of the 33rd Texas Cavalry Regiment who was the highest ranked soldier of the 12,800 Tejanos who served in the Confederate Army. His ancestors founded the city of Laredo and his troops protected the cotton trade through Mexico to support the war effort. In March 1864, although gravely ill, he and thirty of his soldiers defeated a Union force of over 300 who attempted to capture and burn Laredo. He was a brave soldier and a proud champion of local, non-centralized government, a longtime business and government leader, and a hero to working people of all races.
