The Killeen-Fort Hood Council 4535 of the League of United Latin American Citizens has decided to go against the national LULAC council’s resolution to rename Fort Hood after a retired Latino Army Medal of Honor recipient.

In a letter to the national council, Council 4535 president Raul G. Villaronga, a retired Army colonel and former Killeen mayor, stated the Killeen-Fort Hood council decided not to support a resolution to rename Fort Hood after retired Army Master Sgt. Roy Benavidez because not only is Fort Hood a part of their council’s name, but the council treats Fort Hood in the same manner as any other city in the Central Texas community.
