Carlos Gomez, Hispanic Employment Program manager for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Galveston District (SWG), takes a generous helping of home made salsa during the district's Hispanic Heritage Month Observance, October 5, 2023. Fellow panelist Kendell Barber looks on in surprise. The panelists presented ‘¡Caliente!: A presentation on the origins of spicy food’ as part of SWG's Hispanic Heritage Month observance. Gomez and fellow panelists taste tested a variety of homemade salsas and hot sauces provided by their SWG colleagues.
