A great chronicle on the brave Puerto Rican’s of the 65th Infantry. It is a story whose time has been well over due. As I watched the accounts of the Borinqueneers I felt a great pride to know that some of those men were possibly my relatives. My father served in the PRNG prior to WW2. The unit a Combat Engineer Co. was federalized immediately after the attack on Pearl Harbor. I have tried to research my fathers 1556th Combat Engineer Company of the PRNG and have found very little to nothing. But after viewing the story of the Borinqueneers I am glad that someone has taken the time to shed light on achievements of Puerto Rican’s in defense of America. Thanks to all who made the presentation possible.
