A Little History Taken From From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
The 65th Infantry Regiment, nicknamed "The Borinqueneers" from the original Taíno
name of the island (Borinquen), is a Puerto Rican regiment of the United States Army.
The regiments motto is Honor et Fidelitas, Latin for Honor and Fidelity. The 65th
Infantry Regiment participated in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and in
what is known in the United States as the War on Terror.
The most decorated Puerto Rican soldier in US history: A proud "Borinqueneer", the late Don
Modesto Cartagena served in WWII & Korea. He is a recipient of the nation's 2nd highest award
for heroism, the Distinguished Service Cross, as well as the Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze
Star with oak leaf cluster and “V” device, the Purple Heart, and many others.
Honor this wonderful hero-patriot's lasting legacy and that of our other distinguished
Borinqueneer brothers by writing to your 2 US Senators & 1 US House member to seek the
Congressional Gold Medal for the "Borinqueneers"!
