Carlos Cartagena

Noemi Figueroa Soulet;

I would just like to congratulate you for a great documentary. I also would like to thank you in for honoring the veterans of the 65th and in particular featuring my grandfather Modesto Cartagena. My grandfather is the most humble and proudest man I have ever known. He is my true life Hero. My grandfather recently has recently has not been in the best of health. Due to his fighting spirit he is still with us. I just hope the Dept. of Defense stops procrastinating and gives my grandfather the Medal of Honor which rightfully deserves since April of 1951. It was great to see a documentary featuring Puerto Rican efforts defending our country. I would always get frustrated seeing other documentaries of WWII, Korea and never seeing anything mentioned of the 65th. Hopefully with this documentary eyes are opened. On another note, I would publicly like to thank the Borinqueneers Motorcycle club out of Connecticut for going to Puerto Rico and meeting my grandfather and giving him recognition and the clubs vest. Again great job Noemi a big hug from me and the rest of the Cartagena family!!!!
