The planned veterans service building will be named in honor of a lieutenant colonel who flew 246 combat missions in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.
Miguel Encinias, a Las Vegan who now lives in Albuquerque, was shot down, wounded and taken prisoner in World War II. He also was shot down in Korea, rescued by a helicopter and returned to duty.
Gary Ludi, a member of the committee planning the building, recommended the City Council last week name the building in honor of Encinias.
