NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — National Borinqueneers Day honors the soldiers who fought in the 65th Infantry Regiment, the U.S. Military’s only all-Hispanic unit.

"They fought for a country that didn’t treat them as first-class citizens, yet they fought," passionately explained Sen. Richard Blumenthal.

Carmelo Rodriguez Jr. is the President of the New Britain Latino Coalition. He explained that the brave men fought in both world wars and the Korean War. However, he said they weren’t recognized until recently because they were Puerto Rican. As a veteran, Rodriguez said this makes him extremely happy and proud of the nation’s progress.
