Hi Noemi,
 
I am in receipt of your new book: Borinqueneer Photo Directory 2016.
 
Thank you so much for the book!  I love it! 
 
Congratulations on completing such a wonderful book.  It is a great companion to your film, the Borinqueneers. 
 
Now I can put names and faces to those brave Boricuas of the 65th Infantry Regiment who fought and died in the Korean War and all those you so eloquently profiled in your ground-breaking film, one that has drawn praise and acclaim worldwide for both, you and the veterans’.
 
The book is an invaluable resource. Besides the personal photos with Borinqueneer names, dates, ranks, units and the like, it contains a brief history of the regiment, medals awarded, a list of all regiment commanders and those wounded or killed. 
 
Though I understand it is not all-inclusive, your exhaustive work on this book speaks for itself.  To my knowledge no one has ever done such a tribute to the 65th Infantry vets before!  I salute you for this accomplishment
 
I thank you for providing us with such a valuable resource which I’m sure will be treasured by many, especially the veterans themselves, their families, and all the people of Puerto Rico and the Diaspora, including me.   I’ll cherish all my life.
 
 
Long live the Borinqueneers!

Today my great-uncle, Avelino Torres Gonalez from Sabana Grande, Puerto Rico, now residing at North Carolina, and veteran of the Korean War and 65th Infrantry, learned for the first time about your film and I was able to show him the photos at your gallery.  He showed me a photo album full of original pictures he took on the Korean War and places he stayed including the snow storm. I will help him to send them to you and his photo to be included.  Thank you very much for providing a network for families and future generations to honor their brave family members. I will order several DVDs to share with my great-uncle and my dad.

I just want to start by saying that I am proud of our 65th Infantry Regiment. Growing up in Canovanas Puerto Rico I lived closed to “La 65 Infanteria” Carretera #3 (Puerto Rico Route 3) whcih I did not understood the name until I join the U.S Army and I was station in Camp Hovey Korea from 1998 to 1999. I was with the 1st Infantry 9th Regiment doing Staff Duty when I found a military history book that mentioned the 65th Inf Reg.  It had pictures, stories and names of my fellow patriots. I was overwhelm of joy when I read this book. Feeling home sick from being away from my Island I understood how they felt specially in the harsh cold winters. Again I am proud of the 65th and proud of being an American Soldier.

Primeramente es un honor para mi poder plasmar mi comentario en una pagina donde se habla de los hombres, soldados mas valientes que han excistido en la tierra, The Boriqueneers del batallón 65th Infantry Regiment de Puerto Rico. Mi comentario es que porque no buscan en honor a todos esos soldados que con gran valentia dieron sus vidas e inclusive a los que sobre vivieron, y pudieron traer la verdadera historia de los acontecimientos sucedidos, donde ese grupo de soldados Puertoriqueños lograron conquistar una loma, imposible de llegar a la sima, para otros, en el nombre del ejercito americano, que el congreso de los Estados Unidos y la rama militar, aprueven un día feriado oficial en el año, para celebrar, como se celebra el 4 de Julio, el día del Veterano. Llamarle a ese día feriado ” The Borinqueneers Day ”. Que Dios los bendiga a todos.

Comentario de la Editora:  Gracias por su mensaje.  Es una bonita idea tener un día feriado dedicado a los Borinqueneers.  Pero todavía no hemos terminado nuestro labor con la Medalla de Oro del Congreso.  Todavía hay mucho que hacer para planear la ceremonia que tomará lugar quizás el año entrante.  Tenemos que recaudar fondos de la comunidad para poder pagar por las replicas de la Medalla de oro del Congreso que se necesitarán para otorgarles a los Borinqueneers en esta ceremonia.  Cuando tengamos más información lo anunciaremos!
