Dr. Héctor P. García was a true Texas Upstander. Born in Mexico in 1914, García grew up in the Rio Grande Valley, earned his medical degree, and served in the U.S. Army during World War II before settling in Corpus Christi. He led a life committed to social reform, offering low- and no-cost treatment to impoverished patients, setting up the American GI Forum to advocate for equal services for Mexican American veterans, and fighting for equality in education.
