About Heroic Defense of Veracruz
On April 21, is the day commemorated the United States occupation of the Mexican port of Veracruz in 1914. Jose Azueta is considered a Mexican hero for his actions during the battle. The sun of Commodore Azueta, Lieutenant José Azueta, was wounded during the defense of the Naval Academy building. A cadet himself, José Azueta was manning a machine gun placed outside the building, facing the incoming American troops on his own and causing a number of casualties. After the fighting ended, Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels ordered that fifty-six Medals of Honor be awarded to participants in this action. This amount was half as many as had been awarded for the Spanish-American War.
