Valerie Martínez



I am a native Texan originally from Lubbock. I received my B.A and M.A both in history, from Texas Tech University. My Master's Thesis was on the Bracero Program in the Trans Pecos and South Plains Regions of Texas, 1951-1964. I am currently researching Texas Latina military participation in the Second World War.
