The 65th Infantry Regiment …. the Puerto Rican flag flies overseas, in in one of the many American wars!
On this Memorial Day, we honor the Borinqueneers. The 65th Infantry Regiment was composed entirely of Army soldiers from the island of Puerto Rico. For this reason they called themselves…the Borinqueneers.
They served in both World Wars, the Korean War, and the war on terror. They fought so bravely and sustained so many casualties, that they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in 2014. And today we honor them…
The names of those killed in combat are inscribed in El Monumento de la Recordación (Monument of Remembrance), in front of the Capitol Building in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico also honored the Borinqueneers by naming one of its principal avenues in San Juan as La 65 de Infantería.
