Longoria was a Mexican-American soldier killed in action in 1945 while serving in the Philippines in World War II.   Four years later, in January 1949, Longoria’s widow, Beatriz, tried arranging a funeral for her husband whose body was being returned by the U.S. Army. When she was met with resistance over holding the wake at the only funeral home in the small town of Three Rivers, Texas, she reached out to American GI Forum leader, Dr. Hector P. Garcia, a prominent physician and civil rights leader from nearby Corpus Christi, Texas, for assistance.   Dr. Hector P. Garcia reached out to then-Senator Lyndon B. Johnson directly and over the following month, debates played out in the national news over the dispute. Ultimately, with Johnson’s assistance, the family buried Longoria at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors.   This event has caused many analysts to look at the Longoria affair as sparking a turning point in the country’s Latino movement.   - - - This event is co-sponsored by Humanities Texas.   The LBJ Presidential Library is one of 14 presidential libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).
