When I was a little boy in the early 50’s, the topic of discussion at family gatherings was the war in Korea. As I was shuttled back and forth from the mainland to Puerto Rico, the only thing I heard was that Puerto Ricans were either being drafted or fighting in Korea. I, therefore, concluded that “all Puerto Ricans were fighting in Korea.”
While I was watching your wonderful documentary, I thought to myself that I was not that far from the truth.
