About Us

  • Our School was named after local hero, Corporal Benito Martinez, who was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his sacrifice in an action that took place on September 6, 1952, near Sataeri, South Korea. While manning a post forward of the main line of resistance, his position was attacked by a hostile force. The enemy infiltrated the defensive perimeter and Corporal Martinez elected to remain at his post in an attempt to stem the onslaught. In a daring defense, he raked the attacking troops with crippling fire, inflicting numerous casualties. He insisted that no attempt be made to rescue him because of the danger involved. Soon thereafter, the hostile forces rushed the emplacement, forcing him to make a limited withdrawal. After a 6-hour stand shortly before dawn, he called in for the last time stating that the enemy was converging on his position. His courageous stand enabled friendly elements to reorganize, attack, and regain the key terrain.
