A DOCUMENTARY ON THE ALL-PUERTO RICAN 65TH INFANTRY REGIMENT

Some of the Comments

My father Felix Cardona Quiñones died on Thursday, June 21, 2018. He proudly received the gold medal the day of his 90th Birthday April 13, 2016. I am proud of his legacy of service and cordial attitude to his fellow citizens being very proud for being one of many puerto ricans who return to Puerto Rico and help improve our society by developing sports. Editor's Note: Our deepest condolences to you and your family on your loss. We are always sad to hear about the passing of our beloved Borinqueneers.

My father, Hector L. Capella passed away on Valentines Day 02/14/18. He will be missed but know that he is at peace now. He risked his life for this country and was a proud Veteran and Borinqueneer. We made a tribute video of him and also of the Borinqueneers. It is good to know that this site will continue to honor the Borinqueneers and that my father's photo is here. Thank you.
