When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on this date in 1941, Mexican-American sailor Rudy Martinez, from San Diego, was one of the 2000-plus servicemen killed. On the “Date That Will Live In Infamy,” he became the first Latino casualty of the Second World War.

Today we remember Rudy Martinez, a Mexican-American from San Diego who became the first Latino casualty of the Second World War when the Japanese sunk his ship, the U.S.S. Utah, in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii 75 years ago today, December 7, 1941.

Martinez’ story inspired us to search for “Mexican” AND “Hawaii” and we found this video from Kapa’a High School on the (Garden) island of Kauai. The kids wanted to know why their small town of 10,000 — a community with just one Starbucks — was lucky enough to have nine Mexican restaurants.
