Simply put, the 65th Infantry Regiment Borinqueneers are the LatinoAmerican equivalent of the famed Tuskegee Airmen and Navajo Code Talkers. The Borinqueneers must be recognized in like fashion with the Congressional Gold Medal now!

Saluting & thanking under-recognized extreme heroes: MSG Juan E. Negron, first 65th Inf. Reg. Borinqueneer ever to receive the Medal of Honor, the Nation's highest award for individual heroism, received the honor (posthumously) on March 18, 2014, along with several other minority heroes after it was determined that their extreme heroism was under-recognized in the past due to prejudice. Very sadly, only 3 of the 24 minority veterans were alive to accept the long-overdue recognition. We honor & thank them all! It is hoped that Pres. Obama’s presentation will also help to spotlight our historic cause!

Time is of the essence! See this story on WNPR, Mar. 24th: “Another Borinqueneer Dies As Push For Congressional Gold Medal Continues”
