Introduction of 65th Inf. CGM Bill H.R. 1726!!!
Hi Borinqueneers CGM Alliance Contributors,
We have accomplished a PIVOTAL milestone in our 65th Inf. CGM efforts last Thursday, April 25th.
The 65th Inf. Congressional Gold Medal Bill H.R. 1726 has officially been introduced in the House of Representatives!!!!
Please check out this video link to see the speech by Rep. Pedro Pierluisi on the House of Rep. floor:
His House floor speech can be read here:
On behalf of the Borinqueneers CGM Alliance, we would like to extend our gratitude to our Congressional sponsors, Rep. Pedro Pierluisi (Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico) and Rep. Bill Posey (Central-Eastern Florida) for making this legislation introduction possible.
We also want to thank you all of you as FAITHFUL CONTRIBUTORS for your continual support and Congressional outreach efforts.
This milestone not only marks a momentous occasion in history, but also kicks-off the long journey that awaits us.
We still have plenty of work to do before us.
We need to obtain 290 CO-SPONSORS in the House of Representatives.
*****CO-SPONSORS are different than votes.
Now is the time to launch your outreach efforts to your Congressional members in your state and REQUEST TO THEM TO CO-SPONSOR BILL H.R. 1726.
A couple of notes:
1. Also, we are still needing a U.S. Senator to officially introduce the 65th Inf. CGM Bill in the Senate chamber.
********Please contact your U.S. Senators and urge them to introduce the 65th Inf. CGM Bill IMMEDIATELY!!!
Your U.S. Senator offices can call the office of Rep. Pedro Pierluisi at 202-225- 2615 for more administrative details.
The more "LIKES" our FB page has, the more exposure and outreach we build therefore strengthening our cause.
Thank you all for your selfless efforts so far in this noble and HISTORIC initiative.

How you can help
You should sign this petition if you believe that the valiant service of the 65th Infantry Regiment Borinqueneers is worthy of our highest civil award - the Congressional Gold Medal. This recognition not only recognizes the Veterans of the 65th Infantry Regiment but all Latino Veterans past, present and future. During the Korean War, the 65th Infantry was arguably the most ethnically diverse…
