General Alfred A. Valenzuela from the U.S. Army speaks to the importance of recognizing the efforts made by Hispanic Americans as our Nation’s defenders:
Last Plane Out of Saigon, paints a canvas that illustrates that Hispanics and Americans all bleed RED. Whether drafted, volunteered, or convinced that the Army is better than going to jail, the 1% of 300 million Americans served their nation with pride and patriotic service. Hispanic Americans are and have been a key catalyst to defending this nation. Scores of KIAs and MIAs have been highly decorated for their action on the battlefield. They are to be commended."
