Greetings Borinqueneers CGM Alliance Members and

Today marks one month since President Obama signed H.R. 1726, the 65th Infantry Regiment "Borinqueneers" Congressional Gold Medal Act on June 10, 2014. (See attached and below pictures).

This was a momentous and historic achievement for the 65th Infantry Regiment, Puerto Rico, Latinos and all veterans.

We overcame overwhelming odds and challenges but needless to say, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!!

Here is a great article and video interview of me recapping the 65th Infantry Regiment CGM endeavor by the follABC News:

This will probably be one my last few broadcasted emails relating to the Borinquneers Congressional Gold Medal initiative.

With that comes a lot of mixed emotions but first and foremost, I feel honored and privileged to have served as your National Chair for the Borinqueneers CGM Alliance.

I'm eternally grateful to serve with so many great people from around the country that made meaningful contributions to this cause. The names are countless for me to mention here.

In all, it was the collective and cumulative contributions of many individuals around the country regardless of race, ethnicity which made this vision become a reality. I have learned a lot and I have truly enjoyed your mentorship.

For the recommended information on the way ahead for the Borinqueneers CGM future events, we encourage you to read the information posted in our website:

If you know of any LIVING 65th Infantry Regiment veterans, please have their family members fill out our 65th Infantry Regiment census here:

We are not the proponent/responsible organization for the 65th Infantry Regiment CGM future operations and events.

However, we will do our best to keep our supporters and the 65th Infantry Regiment community apprised and informed on the latest and greatest on the CGM journey.

We highly encourage you to follow us on our FaceBook page to receive any relevant updates. (\BorinqueneersCGMAlliance)

Paraphrasing the words of Gen. Douglas MacArthur lauding the 65th Infantry, "[WE] wrote a brilliant record in heroism..." for our legacy and culture....

Thank you again and please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hasta luego y vaya con Dios!


National Chair

Borinqueneers Congressional Gold Medal Alliance
