Victor H. Espinoza (1950s)


United States Army veteran of the Korean War and a recipient of the Medal of Honor, posthumously recognizing his actions on 1 August 1952 at Chorwon, Korea. While spearheading an attack to secure "Old Baldy," Espinoza’s unit was pinned down by withering fire from fortified enemy positions. In daring succession, Espinoza single-handedly silenced a machine-gun and its crew, discovered and destroyed a covert enemy tunnel, and wiped out two bunkers. His actions inspired his unit and enabled them to secure the strong-point against great odds.

Victor Hugo Espinoza died on 17 April 1986, aged 57, in El Paso, Texas.
