Hometown Heroes: A Family of Veterans

Raul Abrego is a San Juan native who served the United States military from March 1964 - January 1968.

During his early life, in 1942, his parents bought a lot in San Juan and a house was later built in 1943. Mr. Abrego had 7 siblings at the time, three of whom, Roy Abrego, Roberto Abrego, and Lupe Abrego, all later served in the military.

Roy Abrego began his military career in 1943, during World War II. He was a Rifleman and later earned the Combat Infantry Badge in 1944. He engaged in campaigns in Central Europe, Northern France, Ardennes, Rhineland, and Normandy. For his service in the military, he earned the EAME Ribbon with 5 bronze stars, a Good Conduct Medal, and a Purple Heart. After sustaining an injury in late 1944, he was Honorably Discharged in 1945. He later re-enlisted after the war & returned to service in 1949.

Lupe Abrego began his military service in 1953, and later separated from the army in 1955. Before leaving the military, his commanding officer sent him a Letter of Commendation.

In 1946, Roberto Abrego began his military service after World War II had ended. He served as a Ward Attendant, where he was tasked with taking care of those wounded in battle. He received a World War II Victory Medal. He left the service in 1947.

Following in the footsteps of his brothers, Raul Abrego also joined the United States military and served from 1964 - 1968. He served in the Navy as a Corpsman, and was later transferred to the Marine Corps where he served with the 3rd Engineer Battalion 3rd Marine Division.

He was stationed at Dong Ha in Vietnam for 1 year as a Corpsman, where he served in the military medical unit.

Mr. Abrego received the Vietnam Campaign Ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and a Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon during his military career.

He then went on to work as a Border Patrol agent in Yuma, Arizona. Afterwards, he became a social worker in Texas. He eventually retired as the Manager of the Harlingen State of Texas Child Support Division under the Attorney General’s Office.

Among the things he learned while serving in the military, Raul Abrego stated, “I learned how to take care of my health, and better myself… Because I had medical training, I was able to discipline myself,” in reference to his experience as a medic during the Vietnam War.

We would like to express our sincerest thanks & gratitude to Raul Abrego, and his brothers Roy, Roberto, and Lupe for their service to our country & for personifying what it means to be Hometown Heroes.
