Thirty-one-year old Jose Montenegro graduated from Houston’s Clear Lake High School and decided to make the military his career. Montenegro died serving his country.

Emilio De Los Santos is Hidalgo County Veterans Director. He says Montenegro and fellow soldier Thalia Ramirez of San Antonio were killed when their helicopter crashed. So far the Defense Department is not confirming reports that the chopper was shot down by enemy fire.
