Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal Alliance
65th Infantry Regiment, Puerto Rico
To award the nation’s highest
civilian honor to a valiant and unique group of veterans in our
Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal Alliance (239)-530-8075 65thCGM@gmail.com Visit us on the web: www.65thCGM.org Facebook: BorinqueneeersCGMAlliance
Why the CGM?
Out of 155 CGM recipients since 1776, only one has been a Latino-American (Baseball Hall of Famer Roberto Clemente).
As the nation’s largest minority group, it is
important to memorialize Hispanic contributions for future generations and to leave an enduring legacy.
Here are some key reasons:
Honors the Borinqueneers while they are still with us!! The youngest of them are in their mid-80s and are passing off to glory.
Stages Hispanic Veterans issues to the national spotlight and forefront.
Promotes Hispanic contributions & advances the Latino image amidst
society’s contemporary negative
perceptions of Latinos.
Let’s honor them while they
are still with us!!!
Do your part!!! Contact your US House members & US Senators & urge them to Co-Sponsor House Bill H.R.1726 and Senate Bill S.1174
