Sgt. Israel Garcia 01.19.84 - 07.13.08

This page is to honor the legacy that Israel left behind. Please remember Israel as an American Hero who gave his life for this nation. Israel will forever be in our hearts. Gone but never forgotten.

The Sgt. Israel Garcia Silver Star Award is presented to a Poly High School boys soccer team player who exhibits extraordinary courage in his athletic performance, demonstrates the ability to overcome adversity, and serves as an inspiration and role model for others. 

I would like to give special thanks to Long Beach Poly High School, Colin MacDiarmid, The Long Beach Giving Project, Booster Club members, coaches, soccer players, and their families.
