More than 20 Fullerton College students gathered in the windy street outside of La Chiquita Market in Santa Ana to learn about local artist Carlos Aguilar’s “Heroes Among Us” mural. Aguilar’s mural scales the entire side of the market and took him five years to complete. The piece honors World War II and Vietnam war veterans of Mexican and Latino decent. Only two men featured on the mural are still alive today.
