Today is a very special day to remember those soldiers that returned home maimed or dead, but let's not forget those that were never able to return. Over 200,000 Puerto Rican soldiers joined the US military since WW1, some were drafted, but many of them volunteered to keep America free.
All veterans from the 50 states and territories made a great sacrifice, some the ultimate sacrifice, and we should thank them for their service as we ought to them our freedom. Some life were shattered, many families destroyed, some wars were fair, some wars were not. However they answered the call.
Join me in remembering and never forgeting all the sacrifices they and their family suffered.
